TLA Rewind, featuring tributes to Yngwie Malmsteen & Ratt

  • What fans love about Yngwie Malmsteen: his neo-classical heavy-metal genius; his effortless ability to cram 100 notes into a millisecond with his signature Strat, "The Duck"
  • What fans don't love about Yngwie Malmsteen: spelling his name
  • Luckily: they can get the Yngwie Malmsteen experience via tribute act Trial By Fire
  • What to expect: Yngwie metal classics such as "Heaven Tonight" and "Rising Force" played by a band with the skills and guts to take on such daunting metal feats
  • What fans love about Ratt: they're sexy and seedy; they encapsulate the spirit of the '80s Sunset Strip in hard rock classics such as "Round and Round" and "Back for More"
  • What fans don't love about Ratt: lead singer Stephen Pearcy just announced he's leaving the group
  • But once again: the TLA Rewind tribute series fills the Ratt-shaped void in listeners' lives with cover band Ratt n' Roll
  • If that's not enough old-school metal: the tribute band Old School shreds out a set of classic heavy-metal covers
