The English Beat/DJ Dubmatrix/Backstage Politics 

When: Thu., Sept. 4, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $18
When the English Beat emerged in the late ’70s, the U.K. group fused punk rock brashness with old-school Jamaican ska beats. The results were striking and the band delivered hits such as “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Too Nice to Talk To.” Though the group took a long break in the late ’80s and ’90s, singer Dave Wakeling, who now lives in Los Angeles, managed to get the group going again in the late 2000s. Last year, the band released a live album and it has a new studio record on the release schedule for 2015 so you can expect to hear at least a few new tracks. (Niesel)
