Huey Lewis and the News
Irving Plaza, Gramercy & Flatiron Monday May 13 2013 20:00

Hurrah! Rather than make us—sorry, encourage us—to listen to new material, ’80s chart busters Huey Lewis and the News hit town to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their 1983 masterwork, Sports. Holler along to "I Want a New Drug," note its similarity to the Ghostbusters theme song, and be glad that Lewis & Co. got enmeshed with the movie industry while suing over the track, because it supposedly led to them making "The Power of Love" for Back to the Future. And do all this at a free Coney Island show? Everybody's happy!
