Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Miami's wildest keg party is just five months away. Of course, we're talking about New Times' Brew at the Zoo, the all-you-can-drink extravaganza presented by Miller's Ale House.

While we've locked down the venue -- Zoo Miami -- and the date -- April 28 -- we're still trying to figure out which 1980s musical act to hire. Pop rock or New Wave? Brooklyn or Detroit? Solo artist or power pop quartet?

This decision is really stressin' us out. So we're going to pass the burden onto y'all. Would you rather see Eddie Money or The Romantics rock the tits off Brew at Zoo?

Take our poll after the cut.

Eddie Money

If the technology in '80s-era mobile phones would've allowed it, "Take Me Home Tonight" would've totally been our ringtone. Is there anything better than Eddie Money's 1986 classic? The answer is absolutely, and it's called "Two Tickets to Paradise." Goddamn we love Money ... Eddie Money.

The Romantics

It's no secret, The Romantics are undeniably one of Crossfade's 15 favorite New Wave bands from Detroit. When we close our eyes and go to sleep, the only thing we're dreaming about are The Romantics playing a gig at a zoo while a captive gorilla pounds his chest to the beat of "Talking in Your Sleep."
