Thursday (Aug. 27), 7pm, Maui Theatre, Lahaina
Original members Cy Curnin (vocals), Jamie West-Oram (guitar), Rupert Greenall (keyboard) and Adam Woods (drums) have been rockin’ since 1981. Add to the mix bassist Dan K. Brown, and you’ve got England’s The Fixx—heralded as innovators of the early MTV age who’ve sold millions of records worldwide. Playing at the gorgeous Maui Theatre in Lahaina, local rockers The Vince Esquire Band will open this all-ages show. Rolling Stone’s Mark Coleman calls The Fixx’s lyrics, “a bit, uh, conceptual.” Perusing YouTube, I found the video for their hit “One Thing Leads to Another” to be rather, uh, conceptual too, with slightly frightening light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel imagery and kissing Dobermans. If you need some flair to wear to the gig, Requests can hook you up—they have a nice little selection of buttons featuring band logos and album art. Tickets to the show are $33.50-$43.50, so in order to go, you won’t have to sell your “precious stones.” For tickets call 1-800-745-3000. Maui Theatre, 878 Front St., Lahaina, HI 96761.
