Truth, justice, rock
Past Action Heroes mix rock, ’80s pop
By John Sollenberger 03/29/2012
If you love the 1980s, then you owe it to yourself to visit T. Boyle’s Tavern Friday night. That’s when Past Action Heroes save the day from starting the weekend on a boring note.
If you’ve never seen these guys, you should. They each dress up as, well, TV action heroes of the ‘80s. Characters include the band’s representations of small-screen heroes, such as “MacGyver,” Sonny Crockett of “Miami Vice,” “Magnum P.I.” and Michael Knight of “Knight Rider.” This is a start-to-finish musical hoot.
However, the wardrobe antics don’t get in the way of the fact that this is one tight, talented band. PAH reproduces spot-on recreations of the best of ‘80s rock and New Wave. This is no joke, as they fight the crime of boredom one hit song at a time. Check them out at pastactionheroes.com.
Music starts at 9:30 p.m. at T. Boyle’s Tavern, 37 N. Catalina Ave., Pasadena. No cover. Call (626) 578-0957 or visit tboylestavern.com.
