Three Imaginary Girls Present Dancing on the Valentine 3

Thursday, February 14

When Jenny George was 12 years old, she was diagnosed with leukemia and told she didn’t have more than 30 days to live. Against all odds (and with the help of some particularly brutal chemotherapy sessions), she beat the disease and was able to realize all sorts of dreams, including motherhood and a fantasy about having all of her friends play a Duran Duran cover night on her 30th birthday. For the past three years, that cover night has been an annual tradition and a highly successful benefit for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Tonight she’s widened the parameters to include a free-for-all of ’80s covers (the only caveat is nothing from prior to 1985 can be played), and we can look forward to plenty of Prince songs, a Human League medley, and, most alluringly, members of the Cops doing Hall & Oates’ “I Can’t Go for That.” With Central Services, C’mon C’mon, the Femurs, Hotels, Bre Loughlin, Ms. Led, and Peter Parker.
