Portland's Tribute to The Cure


We are excited to announce our final show this summer, which will be on July 8 at Wonder Ballroom. Sharing the bill with us once more will be Love Vigilantes, a fantastic New Order tribute from Seattle, and kicking the night off will be a special treat - Portland's The Secret Light, which includes two members of theXplodingboys (Viktor and Michelle). They are good.  Be sure to come on time (7:30) to catch the whole show!

theXplodingboys will bring pornography back to the Paris Theatre.

The Paris Theatre has transitioned back from being a porn theatre to a gorgeous venue for DJs and music. For one night, we're mixing the two by bringing The Cure's 1982 album Pornography in its entirety to life in the Paris Theatre.

theXplodingboys are Portland's premier tribute to The Cure. Now it its seventeenth seconds... year, that is, theXplodingboys focus on the art, ritual, look, feel, and SOUND of the Cure in their prime.

Come witness something very special. And stick around to dance with the band at the monthly 80s night Decadent 80s. Every month at the Paris.
