Strangelove: The Depeche Mode Experience
@HOB Houston

Friday 7/23/2021 8:00 PM

If you are a fan of 80's popular electronic music this weekend at Houston's HOB its "Strangelove: The Depeche Mode Experience". :Depeche Mode" rose to prominence in the early 80's in Europe and Australia. In the United States, the band's music first gained notoriety on college radio and modern rock stations formats. Some music industry commentators suggest the band's style was push back on "soft rock and 'disco hell" music formats developed during that time.

The promotional folks of the band say "Strangelove-The Depeche Mode Experience" delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on key points in Depeche Mode’s illustrious career. Songs from throughout the Depeche canon are lovingly recreated; from favorites on DM’s debut Speak and Spell to the newest fare from ‘Mode’s latest- 2017’s “Spirit”. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation with stage set pieces and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s story, which spans four decades!

Truly evocative of a Depeche Mode arena/stadium stage show; the scale of STRANGELOVE’s theatrical stage production is unparalleled, save for the real article. Custom-produced multimedia projection visuals delight the concertgoer’s senses and enhance the illusion that they are witnessing an actual Depeche Mode concert.

These accomplished musicians have a reverence and devotion to Depeche Mode’s body of work that has driven them to recreate every “detail” and bring the “Music To The Masses” in a concert setting that transcends a mere tribute production and feels more like a shared communal fan club celebration of halcyon days of new wave and emerging electronica. Accuracy and authenticity are hallmarks of the project, with the band employing as many authentic vintage synthesizers and samplers as possible in recreating the classic and widely varied sounds of Depeche Mode’s discography.
