Thursday, December 21st - Thirst Wave + Strangelove - The Depeche Mode Experience

Strangelove - The Depeche Mode Experience return to Small's for a Black Celebration Holiday Show!

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. Multiple projection visual programs assault the concertgoer’s senses and further the illusion that they’re witnessing an actual Depeche Mode concert.

Los Angeles based STRANGELOVE delivers a career spanning, pitch perfect “best of” concert that transports the listener through time and touches on several 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- 2013’s Delta Machine. No detail of STRANGELOVE’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of Depeche Mode’s three decade long story.

These men have a reverence and devotion to Depeche Mode and their body of work that has driven them to recreate every possible detail and bring the “Music To The Masses” in a concert setting that often feels more like a shared communal glorious fan club celebration of yesteryear, and a reliving of youth. Accuracy and authenticity is a hallmark of the group, with the band employing as many authentic vintage synthesizers and archaic samplers as possible.

With over 120 million records sold and a rabid international fan base, Depeche Mode’s career shows no signs of slowing down. Their enormous fan base encompasses all ages and crosses every demographic. STRANGELOVE brings a fun and staggeringly authentic Depeche Mode experience to concertgoers wherever they perform.

“Your singer, Freddie, really has Dave's mannerisms down!” -Martin Gore - DEPECHE MODE

"The best Depeche Mode tribute on the planet!" -Richard Blade - SIRIUS/XM First Wave
