INXS, Berlin Early Warnings (Music) Soundboard

When: Fri., July 29, 8 p.m. 2011

Aside from a chunk of time between the late 80s and the late 90s, Berlin has been a working band since 1978. Though they haven't put out a record of all-new material in almost a decade, they're still making nostalgia tours through casinos and fairs, often with other 80s 'member-thems. The group has managed to coast on perdurable hits like "The Metro," "Sex (I'm A . . .)," "No More Words," and "Take My Breath Away" (with its attendant Tom Cruise brain stain). These days, Berlin consists of an utterly ageless Terri Nunn and some devil-locked 25-year-old ringers in pleather chaps. But judging by recent YouTubes of the band playing gay street festivals, she's still got it. Jessica Hopper
