It's only natural that the Cure concert T-shirts and the Doc Martens in your Gen-X closet have been replaced with Stride Rites and Paul Frank onesies. The magic of your '80s youth — old cassettes, MTV on basic cable — may have dissipated, but new-wave hits still crash metro bars at least once a month, courtesy of the Zeros. Bringing the best of the era, without butchering standards by the Smiths, Duran Duran and Depeche Mode, is no easy feat. A performance by the skinny-tie-wearing trio is the Valley Girl dance party your senior prom should have been, complete with provocatively dancing women, Jäger Bombs and zero adult supervision. When everyone in the bar holds that high note at the end of the Zeros' cover of A-Ha's "Take on Me," we dare you not to get goosebumps at the fond memory of feathered bangs and teen angst.
