The '80s are alive and well on Thursday, with Echo & the Bunnymen rolling into town at Humphrey's Concerts By the Bay. With dozens of "college radio" hits over the years, you can definitely hear the influence of the band decades later in the indie rock of today. The show is sold out, but, of course, you can always join the floatilla in the bay. Around town, there are plenty of great shows, including Future Age at theCasbah

, Anthony Reneri of Bayside at the House of Blues and Joy at Soda Bar.
