If you've got hungry eyes for one of the most popular movie soundtracks of all time, have practised your dance moves with watermelons and fancy getting lifted up into the air Patrick Swayze-style, then make a date with The Triffid on Saturday, January 18. From 8pm, that's when Cheap Fakes will be living out every 80s film fan's romantic dreams and playing the entire Dirty Dancing soundtrack live.

Obviously, you'll have the time of your life. Prepare to hear the Brisbane and Gold Coast band belt out their rendition of the Swayze-crooned and co-written 'She's Like the Wind', too. From the sultry sounds of Eric Carmen's 'Hungry Eyes' to The Ronettes' classic 'Be My Baby', if it's on the Dirty Dancing soundtrack, it'll be echoing through the Stratton Street venue.

The gig will be accompanied by visuals from the movie and the appropriate dance moves, naturally — and dressing the part is encouraged.

Tickets cost $35.10, and remember — no one will be put in a corner here.
