Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park
aims to celebrate all things '80s with its Big '80s party slated to take place on New Year’s Eve. The tribute act the Spazmatics [pictured] will throw a "nerdy" New Wave Dance Party, and there will be screenings of ’80s music videos. Patrons can also play classic arcade games and participate in a Rubik’s Cube contest.
The party will kick into gear at 9 p.m. Tickets, which go on sale tomorrow, cost $35 in advance, $50 at the door.
The '80s are known for New Wave music and arcade video games like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. Quality musical acts such as Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, the Police, Guns N' Roses, R.E.M. and U2 emerged during the period as well.
