The B-52s Play The Klein in Bridgeport on Aug. 7

With their campy boy-girl vocals and '60s pop-rock tunes professing wild love and untamed youth, the B-52s are bringing their dance party back to Connecticut with a concert at The Klein on Tuesday night. Call them new wave, dance pop, post-punk, or '60s rock 'n' roll, the kooky group has pretty much covered it all since their formation in the '70s in Athens, Ga., and gained a following from a loyal international group of rock-lobster-loving fans. After three decades, sold-out world-wide shows, and a number of catchy and memorable hits (love shack baby!), the band is still going strong with the 2008 release of their acclaimed album Funplex, proving that time can't slow down their positive, fun, high-wired performance and sound.


The B-52s

The Klein, 910 Fairfield Ave., Bridgeport. Tue., Aug. 7, 7:30 p.m. $60-$90. (203) 259-1036,
