Nationally known group the Bodeans will perform at 7 p.m. Friday at the Metro, 201 E. Lake St. 

The group is known as "one of the best live acts in the business," with chart-topping songs such as "Fadeaway," "Only Love" and "Dreams." 

Those still-popular songs earned the group recognition as the best new American band in the  Rolling Stone's 1987 readers' poll.

In the more than 30 years since, they've released several albums that have gone on to do well on radio, television and in films, with songs such as "Good Things," "You Don't Get Much" and "All the World," among others. 

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. Advance tickets can be purchased at The Plus, 208 S. Barstow St., or online at volumeonetickets.org.
