Looking forward to a fun run of shows this Spring/Summer! AFOS will be performing after the debut of the world premier of the documentary film “Dare to be Different”.
Featuring interviews and rare footage of U2, Blondie, Duran Duran, Joan Jett, the Cure, Billy Idol, and Depeche Mode, Dare to Be Different is a nostalgic look at WLIR 92.7, the radio station that introduced these bands to a U.S. audience. Director Ellen Goldfarb tells the story of the rise and fall of this institution, and the birth of the punk and New Wave communities. With Joan Jett, Debbie Harry, Billy Idol, and others.
After the movie: A live music tribute to WLIR from A Flock of Seagulls, the English Beat, and the Alarm.
