Old wave: Men Without Hats performs in New Orleans

The band safety dances into Siberia July 27
"The Safety Dance" is one of the enduring documents of the early 1980s, a double-duty Pavlovian bounce anthem for New Wave club-goers and a defiant piss-off to those clubs' bouncers, as well as a set-list staple of Old Wave nights across the country since. Its creators, Montreal bro-bots Men Without Hats, didn't fare as well.
