THE DARK EIGHTIES: SKELETAL FAMILY / THE FOREIGN RESORT / NIGHT PEOPLE | MAR 31 @ THE ASTORIA Despite Skeletal Family undergoing several member changes throughout their first moments of inception in the early - mid eighties, they managed to record their chart topping record “Burning Oil” in four days, which was released by Red Rhino Records. Their distinct and dismal style earned them the clout as the only group in their genre to originate from Keighley, West Yorkshire in the early 1980s. So, it would be no wonder that The Foreign Resort would be joining the bill as they are Denmark's finest musical export of post-punk and dark new wave, led by singer and songwriter Mikkel Borbjerg Jakobsen. The band combines the shadowy mysticism of The Cure's Pornography era with a driving production aesthetic akin to LCD Soundsystem. Vancouver's Night People are slated to kick off the party on March 31st at the Astoria. Tickets
