Being the lead singer of a famous band requires nerves of steel, a surplus of swagger, and the patience to endure Cleveland’s rambling, uncomfortably personal answer to “How you doin’ tonight, Cleveland?” Catch master showmen in their element with this GrouponLive deal.

Belle City Brewfest
Boasting more than 100 craft beers, the Belle City Brewfest tickles tongues throughout an afternoon of tasting delicious libations. Attendees can sip on samples from 25 of the country’s best breweries, including such artisanal stalwarts as Three Floyds, Leinenkugel, Lakefront Brewery, Bell’s, and Sierra Nevada. A commemorative Brewfest mug holds frosty pours, and educational seminars cover such topics as microbrewing, food-and-beer pairing, cooking with beer, and putting out kitchen fires with beer.
Heart-stopping metal riffs and meticulously ratted coifs shine onstage during Hairball’s epic “celebration of arena rock.” Whether donning iconic outfits and channeling legendary rock gods and rock devils, or using their nimble digits to strum and drum as themselves, the six gentlemen of Hairball set eardrums aflame with songs of the ’70s and ’80s. Rock chameleon and lead singer Kris Voxx metamorphoses with eerie precision. Swathed in a pink costume topped with a kinky platinum wig, Voxx becomes the spitting image of Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider; in ruffled shirt and purple tailcoat he’s Prince; and in studs and shades he’s Judas Priest’s Rob Halford. Joe Dandy is capable of cycling through identities including Axl Rose and David Lee Roth, while Rockstar Bob dons Gene Simmons’ famous Nehru jacket.
