Valley Girl, the quintessential ‘80s flick, to screen with live soundtrack

“So, you wanna dance?” Valley Girl, the ultimate ‘80s teen movie – starring Nicolas Cage as a Hollywood punk and Deborah Foreman as the suburban high schooler he falls for (and vice versa) (and whatever happened to Foreman, anyway?) -- gets a much-deserved screening Tuesday night, April 2, at PhilaMOCA.

The powerhouse local band Sweatheart  (“"If Sparks, The Bangles, and Blue Oyster Cult made a smoothie, it might smell a little like Sweatheart" - Naeem Juwan) will rip through selected tracks from the film’s time-capsule soundtrack: songs by The Flirts, Modern English, The Psychedelic Furs and Sparks (“Angst in My Pants,” yes! ) and more. Valley Girl, PhilaMOCA (Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art, 531 N. 12th Street.  8 p.m. for the film, 9:30 p.m. for the music. Info: http://www.philamoca.org/
