Fri 5/20
Modern English

A mainstay of ’80s compilations and nostalgic movie soundtracks,
British new wavers Modern English have maintained quite the cult following since their global hit “I Melt With You” dropped in 1982. Reunited in 2013 with four out of five original members intact, the Essex-formed outfit is currently working on a new album (the first since 2010’s Soundtrack) and touring in support of the 25th anniversary re-release of their 1981 debut Mesh & Lace. To be performed live in its entirety, the album channels a more aggressive post-punk sound than its poppier follow-up After the Snow. $10-$15, 10:30pm Fri, The Amp Room, 2407 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 320-2122, facebook.com/theamproom. — Erik Casarez
