Although Quiet Riot’s first two records featured guitar deity Randy Rhodes, it was their major label debut, Metal Health, that turned 1983 into a banner year for the L.A. headbangers. In runaway hits such as “Bang Your Head (Metal Health)” and their serrated take on Slade’s “Cum On Feel the Noise,” Quiet Riot laid out a heavy metal acumen that still raises horns in record time. Scott Vokoun takes over the lacerating vocal duties from the sadly departed Kevin DuBrow, joining the classic lineup of guitarist Alex Grossi, drummer Franki Banali, and bassist Chuck Wright. Together, they blaze though a set of greatest hits, including “Mama, Weer All Crazee Now,” a song so catchy that even spellcheckers can sing along.
Pat Travers Band
In the ‘70s and ‘80s, when it seemed like every guitarist was from the UK or the U.S., Pat Travers put Canada on the hard-rock map with a brawny, bluesy technique and caramelized bark that suggested Robert Johnson’s crossroads were actually in Toronto. A guitarist’s guitarist, a Guitar Player magazine centerfold, and a hero to Metallica’s Kirk Hammett, Pat uses his frenzied fingers to boil strings like linguini as he supports his latest album, Blues on Fire.
The Brass Monkey
The Brass Monkey assembles pool sharks, beer connoisseurs, and wing aficionados for billiard rounds on its 16 tables. Partakers can choose among four 9-foot Crown tables, four 7-foot Brunswick tables, and eight 7-foot coin-operated Valley tables. When customers sink the evening’s final eight ball or finish eating all the chalk, they’re invited to scope out a variety of concerts, from revered songwriters to party-fueling cover bands.
