There’s always a lot New Wave represented in the wildly popular with Gen X dance night Transmission, but this month DJ Jake Rudh goes all in on music from 1978-1986. It’s a perfect way to keep party going after Rudh opens for the stacked throwback lineup of Modern English, Gene Loves Jezebel and The Alarm (Ramona’s favorite band in “Snake Farm”!), who stop the Fine Line to melt with you earlier in the night. Wednesday, August 14th, 8 PM show, 10 PM dance party. —Ashlynn McKinney
