There are those who try to forget cultural trends of yesteryear, and others who will defend their favorite decade with gusto. The latter group is who Christine Garvin is targeting with her next event, Hot Summer Nights: ’80s Meets ’90s. “The whole evening is about bringing together these two fantastic decades through dance, music, storytelling, improv, aerials and fun interactive [activities],” Garvin says. Between eclectic individual and group performances, guests can dance to time-tested hits, check out a buti yoga demonstration, play games and stop at a massage area. Plus, local nonprofits Girls Rock Asheville and Girls on the Run receive a portion of ticket sales and proceeds from a retro raffle to support the next generation of doers. The party is at Isis Restaurant & Music Hall on Saturday, Aug. 20, at 8:30 p.m. $18/$23 ($26 VIP). isisasheville.com. Photo by Andrea Coon Photography
