This Fall the 80s are alive at the Granada Theater

I am a child of the 80s, so these are my glory years and the music of this era will forever be my anthem. It's great to see the 80s making a pop culture comeback. Walk into any store and you'll see the 80s everywhere: neon colors, strands of pearls, peplums, padded shoulders and harem pants.  80s bands are also still going strong and touring the country.  The Granada Theater is bringing some of the biggest acts from the 80's to town.  Like, oh my God, it will be so rad!
