This weekend: Hair-metal nostalgia, and Man Man

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Wanna party this holiday weekend like it's 1984? Toyota Park in Bridgeview, 7300 W. 71st St., is sponsoring the two-day MusicFest Friday, July 3, and Saturday, July 4. Friday's performers are Billy Squier, Starship starring Mickey Thomas, Over the Rainbow and Off Broadway. Saturday's are Lita Ford, Warrant, Lynch Mob, L.A. Guns, Adler's Appetite, Enuff Z'nuff and the Leftovers. Tickets are $10 per day or $15 for a two-day pass via www.ticketmaster.com, (312) 559-1212.

Keeping the freaky spirit of Frank Zappa's original Mothers of Invention alive and well in the new millennium, Philadelphia's experimental rockers Man Man come to the Bottom Lounge, 1375 W. Lake St., at 8 p.m. Sunday, July 5. Expect horns; expect fractured rhythms; expect the unexpected. Chandeliers open, and tickets are $15 via www.ticketweb.com.

A quick note that Slippery When Wet has replaced Lynch Mob in Saturday's line-up. Toyota Park is easily reached as it's near I-294, I-55, CTA and Pace.
