It's easy to hate on '80s music, but there are a few sacred cows from that decade, and we think Huey Lewis and the News should be one of them. Yeah, "I Want a New Drug" and "Power of Love" are way corny. But they're supposed to be. And you gotta love Huey, who always looked like he should've been working in a seedy casino or announcing strippers in back-alley clubs. Dude was a master of Hawaiian-shirt chic.

Fans of Lewis can don their Hawaiian shirts today when the band comes to town. They'll be sharing the bill with Chicago, a band that was at its phattest in the '70s (remember "If You Leave Me Now"?) and now makes music for your mom. If you're a fan of '80s classics, this should make for a good show -- so long as you don't mind your parents showing up.
