The B-52s have always cut a wide path, from early college radio to 80s New Wave to the MTV era, from post-punk to retro-surf to the very core of dance music itself. Theirs is a body of work that is singular, timeless and beloved. There’s no mistaking the signature call-and-response vocal play of singers Fred Schneider, Kate Pierson, and Cindy Wilson matched with the unique guitar stylings of Keith Strickland. And with over twenty million albums sold and a nonstop touring schedule, this revolutionary rock band shows no signs of slowing down. The band has just released their first-ever live CD, DVD and Blu-Ray, With the Wild Crowd! Live in Athens, GA. Recorded in the band’s hometown, the show commemorated the band’s 34th anniversary of their first-ever live show on Valentine’s Day 1977. With the Wild Crowd! is filled with all the excitement, fervor and energy of a classic B-52s dance party, a showcase for the non-stop, high-octane force of a group that has never lost their youthful and dynamic energy.
