(The Definitive DEPECHE MODE Experience)
$10, 21+, 9pm
The Cellar Door
101 W. Main St., Visalia
Los Angeles-based, STRANGELOVE is the Ultimate Depeche Mode Tribute experience. The group has been embraced by the packed Cellar Door crowd every time they've perform in Visalia. This time they are bringing a DJ and a larger light and video show production.
Their theatrical stage production is unparalleled, save for the real article. Multiple projection visual programs assault the euphoric concertgoer’s senses and further the illusion that they are witnessing an actual Depeche Mode concert.
No detail of the band’s presentation has been overlooked. The visual presentation and in-show costume changes reflect different eras of D’Mode’s decades-spanning career. Audience members can revel in the seemingly impossible unfolding before their eyes and unbelieving ears. 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- 2009’s Sounds of the Universe.
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.
