Whoa whoa whoa whoah! Holy '80s flashback! Howard Jones will be performing his first two albums, Human's Lib and Dream Into Action, in their entirety at the Summit Music Hall on Saturday, October 15. Even if you're drawing a blank when HoJo's name comes up (if you were born around the time of Nevermind, you're excused), you've undoubtedly heard at least a few of his tunes in a grocery store, elevator or during retro weekend, hits like "No One is to Blame" and "Things Can Only Get Better." If not, click through for a listen to the latter and then head over to Soda Jerk's website and snag your tix.
