Description:

It is a fact of life that there are periods where everything old is new again…if you look at Broadway, for example, old productions are always being brought back…

Take “West Side Story,” for example…it first premiered in 1957 and was brought back in 1960, 1964, 1980, 2009, and 2020…that’s five revivals…the Gershwin musical “Porgy and Bess” has been brought back seventimes…

Movies are always being rebooted… “Ghostbusters,” “Planet of the Apes,” “King Kong,” “Robocop,” “Willy Wonka,” “Halloween,” “Spider-Man”…“A Star is Born” first appeared in 1937 and was remade in 1954, 1976, and 2018…

Then there are all the tv remakes…”MacGyver,” “90120,” “Dynasty,” “Lost in Space,” “Roseanne,” “Twin Peaks”…“Star Trek,” of course…

And then there are musical reboots, scenes and sounds that are brought back by people who are sometimes generations removed from when this music first appeared…

Maybe it starts with people who stumble on some old records…or maybe they independently discovered sounds and styles that they thought they were new…

Whatever the cause or source, music is constantly being recycled and renewed…and that’s what we’re looking at with this series of shows…this is “alt-rock revivals: part 5”…and the focus is New Wave…
