80s Dance Party on the Alley

80s Dance Party on the Alley

Presented by: Old Pasadena Management District
104 E. Colorado Boulevard
Big Bang Theory Way
Pasadena, CA 91105

Free and open to the public

Old Pasadena revisits the decade of new wave, synth-pop, and early hip-hop with the 80s Dance Party on the Alley.  The free, outdoor party takes place on the south end of Big Bang Theory Way - 93 E. Green Street in front of Dog Haus Biergarten.  Don your shoulder pads, leg warmers, scrunchies, big earrings, parachute pants, and neon outfits for a totally tubular evening in Old Pasadena! 

DJ Glenn Red will be on hand spinning rad tunes that feature the very best of 1980s music genres, including new wave, post-punk, new romantics, ska, techno, dance-pop, and early hip-hop and rap.  

Expect a gnarly night on the alley where event-goers can play arcade games hosted by Neon Retro Arcade, snap pics with 80s props, and enjoy free Paradis Ice Cream cups while supplies last.

Finally, throughout the event, visitors can visit the all-new, just re-opened Dog Haus Biergarten and take advantage of its extended Happy Hour between 6:00-8:30pm, which features

  • $3.00        PBR 16oz Cans
