Packed House Productions presents "Best Friend's Girl" - A Tribute to The Cars on Saturday, October 7, 2023, at 7:00 PM at The Theater at North!

"Best Friend's Girl" recreates the timeless hits of The Cars spanning a 35-year career, with over 23 million albums sold and more than 22 songs on the Billboard Top 100. The Cars undoubtedly left their mark in popular culture with notable hits like “My Best Friend's Girl,” “Shake It Up,” “Magic,” “Let's Go” and of course, “Moving in Stereo” which gained notoriety from its placement in the movie “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Best Friend's Girl is comprised of lifelong, top-notch, professional musicians whose goal is to keep the music of The Cars alive with every performance!

The Cars' journey began with Ric Ocasek and Benjamin Orr collaborating on several projects in the early 70s. Ric and Benjamin eventually completed the lineup with Greg Hawkes, Elliot Easton, and David Robinson in Boston in 1976. In the confusion left behind by the death of disco and the angst of punk, they forged a new direction bringing together the synthesizer sound with classic rock and roll roots. It created a unique sound for the time and icon John Lennon became a fan stating: "I think The Cars’ 'Touch and Go' is right out of the 50s ‘Oh, oh…‘ A lot of it is 50s stuff. But with 80s styling.”

Tickets go on sale on April 29th at 7:00 PM.
