The Pyschedelic Furs, Black English 

When: Sun., May 24, 7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $25-$28
Psychedelic Furs’ enduring hit, “Pretty in Pink,” is mopey and poppy in perfect proportion to be the inspiration for a John Hughes flick. The 1986 recording that conquered the charts is a crummier version of an earlier song, though, slathering over darkness with junky saxophone that obscures lyrics about theft and car crashes. That compromise made them briefly huge, but life’s funny. Without their second life as international stars, the Butler brothers probably would have ended up exactly where they are now, playing mid-sized theaters on the reunion circuit, coasting on the strength of their early post-punk material. —Jeff Klingman
