Loose Ends with DJ Mark Fulla Flava – 4/16

Do you remember Loose Ends from back in the 80s? Me neither. However what with the 80s and 90s firmly becoming the latest wave of retro-chic in music (and everything else), a lot of the old goodies from that period are resurfacing now, like this British R&B trio that crossed the pond in the early 80s and became the very first British export to top the Billboard R&B charts.

Well folks they’re back on the road and Giant Step, with our friends at The Shrine in Chicago, are excited to be showcasing them on Saturday, April 16th, backed by Verzatile and special guest DJ Mark Fulla Flava. Doors open at 8pm, and show starts at 9pm. In the meantime, check out these videos below to get you contemplating.
