This union between Hawkes and Eddie Japan has been in bloom in recent years, as the two have shared stages around New England. But this is the first time Eddie Japan and their special guest collaborator will be performing a full set from the legendary Boston pop group.
“Greg produced our record Golden Age in 2017, and that led to him joining us on stage a couple of times for mini sets of Cars songs,” Eddie Japan’s David Santos tells Vanyaland. “We had always wanted to expand it to a full night of music when schedules permitted, so this is really quite a dream for us. As a Boston band, it’s pretty incredible to be entrusted with the keys to The Cars, so to speak.”
