Friday Wednesday you’ll be in love! Even before Rob Smith and his merry band of sensitive goths were Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame nominees, DJ Jake Rudh’s Transmission heavily featured The Cure in its wildly popular dance night. Help Rudh help them spin along the dizzy edge of their likely lifetime achievement award with a simultaneously moody-yet-carefree (that’s what makes them legends) installment of Transmission’s tribute to The Cure that includes many of the band’s hits, deep cuts, and contemporaries. Get there early in your makeup, the dance floor will definitely fill up. Wednesday, October 17th, 10 PM. Free.Johnny Cairo
