    It sounds interesting...but I would expect more from Richard Blade. He is one of the men responcible for Bands Re-united on VH1 and the line ups for this convention are only local tribute bands. The theater is not a great venue, but I hope it does well.

    BoingoCure- I may be going also as I've been to several of these conventions in the past and think they're great places to hang with and meet fellow 80's/DM fans. I personally prefer the annual Smiths/Moz Conventions which are just as fun. I've also noticed these shows are attracting a more younger generation, which is good of course but they seem limited to just "the newer stuff". Since there are several of these events a year (for different bands), they tend to be more like swap meets at the start where you can find just about anything for sale related to the bands, but the cover bands along with the dance party afterwards make it that much better.

    As far as expecting more from Richard Blade as MC, I'm not sure what you mean LostBoy, since he's been the host of these events since they began in the early 90's. Yes there will be local tribute bands performing (pretty darn close to the real thing I might add), but are you actually expecting DM themselves? In fact, Richard has introduced DM on stage, as well as other great bands such as the Cure, Boingo, U2, Morrissey, etc. many times at real concerts. He's sort of the So. Cal. Guru of vintage KROQ (Alt. 80's) and is warmly welcomed at all these venues, especially since events like this eventually turn into huge dance parties, his specialty for the past several decades.

    So, to all those attending, have fun!!
