The Legwarmers Put on One Helluva Show


Last night, me and about twenty friends ventured out to Falls Church, VA to see a performance of The Legwarmers, DC’s premiere 80s cover band.  I had only seen them once before, about five years ago.  And as they approach their ten year anniversary, they are just as amazing as when I first saw them.

There was only one negative thing I can say about the show last night at The State Theatre.  It started 45 minutes late!  I know concerts rarely start on time, but 45 minutes?!

But the over all night was extremely fun!  Their set list included 43 songs that span more than three hours.  But don’t just take my word for it.  Visit my YouTube channel where I posted nine videos from last night’s performance.  Below, I’ve included the set list for the show.  Needless to say, I will be going to see another show!
