One of the great bands to come out of 1980's Portland, Oregon, NU SHOOZ just celebrated the 30 year anniversary of the release of their signature hit, 'I Can't Wait.' Now they're launching their first album of new material since 1988, a nine-song set called 'Bagtown.' 'Bagtown' turns back the clock to an earlier era of funk, the Mid-70's sounds of Philly Soul, Steely Dan, and jazzy vocal groups like Manhattan Transfer. The result is a swinging set of technicolor tunes aimed straight at the dance floor. The band re-formed three years ago in 2014; the members are all alumni from previous incarnations of the groups 36 year history. Singer Valerie Day says, "We wanted people we knew could get Nu Shooz right," and get it right they do. The party starts at 7 PM (Pacific) with DJ Bobby D. Nu Shooz hits the stage at 8 PM and 9:30 PM The after party goes from 10:30 to Midnight w/DJ Bobby D
