80’s pop rock sensations The Bangles headline World Cafe Live tonight.

The group achieved early success with their pop hits including “Eternal Flame” and “Walk Like An Egyptian”  and became one of the handful of all-female groups to achieve international attention in the 80’s. You can watch their music video for their hit “Manic Monday” below. Find more information on tonight’s show on the XPN Concert Calendar. Continue reading →
