“Love My Way,” “Pretty in Pink,” “Heaven,” “The Ghost in You”—hit after hit after hit, the Psychedelic Furs were an era-defining band in the 1980s. Whether you were new wave, goth or punk, the Furs had something for you; the band had enough edge and mystery to give their mainstream popularity underground credibility. Formed in the late ’70s in London by brothers Richard and Tim Butler, the band went on a 10-year hiatus in the early ’90s but reformed in 2001, and it has been touring and performing ever since. If you want to revisit your youth, or just witness one of the great post-punk bands, get out your hairspray, cuffed jeans and paisley shirt and hit the Catalyst on March 11.
