The English Beat

When: Thu., Dec. 10, 8 p.m. 2015

When Dave Wakeling last brought his English Beat charges to Spokane in the spring, he was in the midst of recording a new album, Here We Go Love, and getting ready to take the band to his native England for the first time in years. Fast-forward six months and after that British tour received rave reviews, the new album still hasn’t seen the light of day. Even so, new songs are making their way into sets full of the socially conscious dance-party Beat favorites like “Save It For Later,” “Best Friend” and “Stand Down Margaret.” In May, the new “The Love You Give (Lasts Forever)” made its way into the sold-out show at The Bartlett, and you can expect more this time around.
