The high pop priestesses of the 80s, The Go-Go’s came, saw and conquered the world of pop culture and now they’re bringing their internationally loved kicky kitsch appeal and original line up to The Mahaffey on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, 7:30pm.
From their halcyon days as America’s sweethearts to their current status as superstars who pioneered a genre, The Go-Go’s preside over an amazing three-decade reign with a story that’s a punk version of the American Dream. The Go-Go’s cemented their place in pop culture by offering five feisty role models for a generation of ready-to-rock girls by playing their own songs without outside composers or creative compromise. That attitude and sparkling California pop appealed to an astonishingly wide cross-section of music fans and turned Belinda Carlisle, Jane Wiedlin, Charlotte Caffey, Gina Schock and Kathy Valentine into certified rock stars that deftly defined the spirited 80s sound.
