Concert Review and photos by Colt McGraw

In 1983, a petite New Yorker with a Queens accent splashed onto the scene and became an instant pop culture phenomenon.  Her debut album, “She's So Unusual,” went on to sell nearly 20 million copies while producing two number one singles that have become timeless anthems around the world: “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” and “Time After Time.”
