EAGLE – Chadzilla & The Asteroids bring the best music of the 1980s to the ShowDown Town free concert series Thursday night. The retro fun gets underway at 6:30 p.m. at Eagle Town Park.The days of neon glasses, leg warmers and stand-up video games return, if only for one night, with Chadzilla & The Asteroids. With an ’80s set list as big as its stage presence, Chadzilla, Mike Cappo, Adam Kilgus, Jonny Barber and Allen Burki-Bassturns turn back the clock with every hit.Since their 2008 debut in front of a sold-out crowd at Red Rocks amphitheater, Chadzilla & The Asteroids have been spreading ’80s fever across Colorado, including being the featured band at the final 2009 Street Beat performance in Vail. Covering the likes of Billy Joel, Guns & Roses, U2 and many more timeless groups, the band personifies everything that made the decade unforgettable.In addition to the free music, the family-friendly event also features a host of activities for the kids each week. Activities for this week include an interactive insect and spider exhibit with the Denver Butterfly Pavillion. Picnics are welcome and several members of Eagle’s restaurant community are also on hand to sell food.
