Awash in ’80s nostalgia, the synthwave scene is all about capturing the feeling of watching a cool karate training montage or driving scene from straight-to-video action films of the era. Two of the area’s more keen retro-merchants – ACP Pro and Moondragon – share the stage at the Geek Easy for a trip down implanted memory lane. They’re joined by South Florida retro-pop duo Alpha Quadrant for a party that can only be described as bitchin’.
