Howard Jones, Men W/O Hats, All Hail the Silence

Saw Howard Jones, Men Without Hats and All Hail the Silence live on Long Island tonight. Had a good time, but it was a strange show.
1All Hail the Silence

I mostly bought the ticket to see this band tonight (I've seen Jones and Men Without Hats before), and I enjoyed their set a lot. Their new Daggers album might be my favorite album of 2019 so far. They are protege's of Erasure's Vince Clark, and are very much in the '80s new wave tradition. And BT from this band also played with Howard Jones on his new album.
2Men Without Hats
Rhythm of Youth

These guys played a full set tonight, that included "Pop Goes the World", a cover of ABBA's "SOS", and a number of songs from their 1982 Rhythm of Youth album. But while Ivan Doroschuk is still an energetic performer, let's face it -- it's all about "Safety Dance".
3Howard Jones

This was the first North American date in this tour for Jones, who is supporting his brand new (May 2019) Transform album. They had some equipment problems early on, and the set felt a little lackluster to me until about the halfway point, at which point it kicked into another gear.
