Alex P. Keaton and Ghostbusters. The L.A. Olympics and Big Brother. AquaNet and RayBans. Yes, even the birth of Prince Harry.

1984 was a big year in news and culture — and it was a radical year in music. This weekend, local musicians will take the top tunes of 1984 to an entirely new level in the third concert from the Somerville-based Mixtape series.

One year of music + one night of live bands = an endless dance marathon.
