Gig Alert: The Bangles

The Bangles
“I’ll Never Be Through With You”
Playing Monday at The Highline Ballroom
(431 W. 16th St., Chelsea)
Get: Tickets ($35) | Directions

Thanks to the worldwide success of the 1986 novelty hit “Walk Like An Egyptian,” The Bangles has been unfairly categorized as a “one-hit wonder” band.

In truth, the all-girl group that started as a punky garage-rock experiment in Los Angeles logged one other No. 1 hit with “Eternal Flame,” and quite a few songs that hit No. 2. (Any "Manic Monday" fans out there?)

Now, the group is back and touring with a brand new album titled Sweetheart of the Sun, that features the song “I’ll Never Be Through With You.” The folsky, alt-pop type of song is quite a bit removed from the production-heavy New Wave sound the band was once known for.

Catch The Bangles on Monday night live at the Highline Ballroom.

"The folsky, alt-pop type of song is quite a bit removed from the production-heavy New Wave sound the band was once known for."

What?

The band has returned to the sound they originally STARTED with, for those who either don't remember or haven't done their homework.
