For a taste of the ’80s and a dance party sure to dazzle your bright-colored Spandex off, check out “Back to the Eighties” on Saturday nights at Le Poisson Rouge. Seven-piece band Jessie’s Girl take the stake equipped with a synthesizer, sparkly makeup, mulleted guitarists, and three costume-changing singers, covering all the hits you loved in the ’80s if you were around in the ’80s to love them. Selections include “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “Video Killed the Radio Star,” “I Had the Time of My Life,” and oh-so-much more. DJs spin other favorites before and after the main event, and party favors — including confetti, red balloons (99 of them, probably), and a montage of movie clips from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Back to the Future, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, etc. — abound.
