Got a minute? Use that time to plan out your music week. On Glenn Gamboa’s Music Minute (G2M2 for short), we’ll fill you in on the week’s biggest concerts, show you some must-see videos and let you know about the songs you need to buy. Check it out here at Backstage Pass every Monday morning.

This week, it’s all about the power of the ‘80s. The Retro Futura Tour featuring Howard Jones and Thompson Twin Tom Bailey arrives at Pennysaver Amphitheater on Saturday. And the ‘80s influence is heavy in Arcade Fire who take over Barclays Center from Friday through Sunday.
