In the past couple of months, I've been playing music for a monthly event in Washington, D.C. called Betamax Video Club. In their words, it's "a celebration of 80's B movie classics and home video club culture." Before and after the movie, I play some obscure tunes from today that were inspired by the 80s, along with other styles that would fit the mood for the night.
