Perpetual Groove to Play John Hughes Halloween Variety Show alerted us to Perpetual Groove’s plans for their Halloween concert at the National in Richmond, VA: a John Hughes Variety Show. From the P-Groove website:

Once again carrying the torch for their favorite movies, Perpetual Groove will present their tribute to movie director John Hughes for Halloween 2009. We highly suggest you attend dressed as your favorite character from any of John Hughes’ movies. Except maybe Curly Sue.

That just has awesome written all over it. Of course, maybe I just have a thing for the John Hughes classics having grown up in the 80s in the near-north suburbs of Chicago (Evanston). By the way, if you’re looking for great Halloween show to attend, check out our Halloween Round-up…it’s massive.
