For anyone who grew up listening to KROQ in the ’80s, Depeche Mode, The Cure and The Smiths form a sort of holy trinity of bands whose music was a dark antidote to L.A.’s eternal sunshine and the Reagan era’s vapid materialism. Now in its 10th year, the ’80s Holiday Hangover concert gathers tribute bands representing those three acts. Headliners Strangelove are SoCal’s best Depeche tribute, with a Dave Gahan look-alike and sound-alike in frontman Freddie “Devotional Dave” Morales, while The Cured deliver a highly credible version of rooster-haired Robert Smith and co. circa 1987 and These Handsome Devils re-create the hits of both solo Moz and The Smiths. The wild card on the bill is Electric Duke, who do synth-pop reinventions of David Bowie’s music from throughout the decades, with ace Bowie stand-in Julian Shah-Tayler (also of The Band That Fell to Earth) on vocals.
