For those of you unhip to the most hoppin local happenings going down in July, you still have the chance to catch the final two installments in our monthlong series of 8 off 8thshosted by the Cream, the Scenes music blog. Each Monday this month, eight of our favorite local bands rip through a decades worth of covers with authority and style, and this week weve arrived at the 80s. The best thing about reaching the back half of our covers nights? The performers were actually alive when these songs were big. Expect a little more authenticity. Playing tonight are How I Became the Bomb, The Protomen, Heypenny, The Non-Commissioned Officers, Chris Crofton and the Alcohol Stuntband, Bows and Arrows, Eliza the Arrow featuring Thundersnake and Plex Plex.
