This New Year’s Eve, Transmission goes all in for the ’80s at the First Avenue dance night. No corner of the decade will go unspun, as DJ Jake Rudh plans a mix featuring top 40 (Madonna! U2! Cyndi Lauper! George Michael!), R&B (Prince! Chaka Khan!), goth (The Cure! Siouxsie & the Banshees!), and even hits from iconic soundtracks (Footloose! Top Gun!). Looks from the era are encouraged, and a photographer will be on hand to capture the glamour. 18+.
