In my daily dive into the concert line-ups in Detroit, ATL and Charlotte, I came across Peter Carrol and Manzur Iqbal of Futurecop!. Their description on the The Crofoot’s website mentioned Girl Talk, so I immediately had to check them out. What I found is a UK duo that emulates everything awesome about the ’80s: ridiculous neon, space age synthesizers and over the top light shows. How could you not love a band that lists The Flight of the Navigator as one of their influences?
I can’t say much more than what Detroit blogger Jeff Milo wrote about Futurecop!. They are part of the massive ’80′s pop-inspired dance music movement that has been taking over the music scene the past few years. I’ll certainly keep you updated with their nostalgic mash-ups and original beat heavy tracks.
If you are in the Detroit metro area, on Monday, March 2nd, I highly recommend you join Futurecop! at the Pike Room. Doors open at 8pm and tickets are a cheap, $10.
The Atlanta stop is Tuesday, March 24th at 529. Tickets are $7.
