THE RUDE AWAKENING LIVE IN EDINBURGH ... SATURDAY 18TH MAY 2019

TRA performing Kaleidoscope live on the same bill as the amazing Party Fears Three, in the beautiful city of Edinburgh

Ever since it's inception nearly a decade ago Party Fears Three have sought to excavate, recreate and illuminate some of the finest songs from the decade which gave the world it's finest synth-based bands and music.

Combining vintage sounds with modern technology to create a contemporary but uniquely recognisable eighties soundscape, the band has thrilled audiences at venues and festivals across the UK including last year's Party at the Palace.

Now streamlined and on the verge of it's second decade, the band continues to bring to life the music and spirit of artists such as OMD, The Human League, Ultravox, Depeche Mode, Erasure, Talk Talk, David Bowie, Tears for Fears & many more.
