(Marymoor Park) Putting the blue-eyed soul crooners and architects of some of the most ubiquitous, recognizable pop hits of the '80s, Hall & Oates, on this stage in the middle of a giant park in Redmond will likely draw two main types of crowds: younger, somewhat-ironic appreciators (so-called "hipsters," if you will) that missed or just didn't get enough of them two years ago at Bumbershoot, and East Side–dwelling parents and adults who actually listened to this stuff when it was tearing up the charts. But regardless of age, where one's appreciation comes from, or how much better of a song Stevie Wonder's "Part-Time Lover" is than "Maneater," the duo's deep catalog of smash hits will ensure that the slightly offbeat dance moves keep coming and the white wine keeps flowing all night.
