WXYC will attempt the impossible later this week: time-traveling back to the decade when Michael Jordan was still playing in Carolina blue and white.
This Thursday, Nov. 29, WXYC will be hosting a 1980s themed dance at Cat’s Cradle. Doors open at 8 p.m., and the dance will go from 8:30 p.m. to 1 a.m.
The dance’s Facebook event is encouraging people to come in their best 1980s-themed costumes. The event also cites a recent resurgence of 1980s nostalgia. Seamus Holland, a DJ for WXYC, agreed that the 1980s are in.
Tickets will be $5 for one-card holders, and $8 for everyone else.
“There’s a lot of great music that was released in the '80s, and I feel like it’s been kind of having a resurgence, almost, in popular culture,” Holland said. “I feel like there’s a lot of different trends that are harkening back to the '80s, and I’ve seen a lot of movies that are set in the '80s.”
Various WXYC DJs will spin tracks at the event, each doing a 50-minute set. WXYC officially announced set lists and DJs yesterday. Tickets will be sold in the Pit starting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.
