The Psychedelic Furs

8:00 p.m. April 12 @ The Paramount


Emerging from the primordial ooze of the Velvet Underground, the Stooges, and MC5, the Psychedelic Furs were the electrified, sax-inflected pulse that punctuated the heartbeat of the '80s. Immortalized by the eponymous anthem that inspired John Hughes's Pretty in Pink, the Furs shepherded Gen-Xers through the unchecked hedonism of Reaganomics and Thatcher-era malaise. Now, erstwhile guitarist John Ashton unveils Satellite Paradiso, a long-gestating all-star project that explores cosmological questions uniting science, nature, and temporality with a totalizing virtuosity. Distortion becomes a palpable electromagnetic field as Ashton embarks on a Dante-esque sonic journey through a rhythmic wormhole in space-time that leads somewhere between 1984 and a timeless utopian future.
