It had been a quiet five years since the last Duran Duran album, but in 2016 the Britpop act finally broke the silence with its 14th studio album Paper Gods. The new record sticks to the synth-drenched, new wave sound that the group helped popularize in the ’80s, with help from guest vocalists such as Lindsay Lohan and Janelle Monáe. They are playing both sides of the bay this week — Friday’s set at the Fox in Oakland is sold out, but you can still catch them at the Masonic in San Francisco.
