Thursday night at Stereo Live on Richmond in Houston, TX was given a lil’ blast from the past from Great Britian and the US in the form of 80s bands When In Rome, Animotion, and A Flock of Seagulls. In the words of Animotion bass player Charles Ottavio, “You have just stepped into a time machine and traveled back to 1985.”

Animotion literally stole the show for the night. Their high-energy show was nothing short of  infectious and made you want to bang your head metal-head style, dance, or both. This was due in part to lead singer Astrid Plane, who performed such songs as their best-known smash single from 1983, Obsession. Animotion performed songs from their 1st and 2nd albums such as I Want You as well as some new songs like Ready To Fly in which lead singer Plane said “this song is dedicated to anyone who has had to start over this year.”

Well-spoken, Astrid!
