The other night, my good friend Caroline and I headed down to my favorite SoHo nightclub, the Canal Room, for a musical stroll down retro memory lane with 80’s cover band, Rubix Kube (http://www.rubixkube.com/).
After sipping a few cosmos (mixed to perfection by bartender Danielle), we parked ourselves in front of the stage. The show began with snippets of classic 80’s films like “Top Gun,” and “E.T.” Then, for the next two hours, Rubix Cube presented a nostalgic set of classics from the era of leg warmers and jelly bracelets.
From “Video Killed The Radio Star” and “Hey Mickey” to “Get Into The Groove” and “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” Rubix Cube took us back in time, delivering an electrifying mix of 80’s hits performed with great energy and perfect pitch. The band wasn’t exaggerating when they thanked the crowd for being great back-up singers -- we sang along to every word.
By the time Rubix Cube performed their encore -- a rousing rendition of “Livin’ On A Prayer” -- Caroline and I had given new meaning to that 80’s catchphrase let’s get physical by working up a major sweat from dancing.
Cosmos, a dear friend, and a great cover band -- the ideal ingredients for a perfect night out!
