Hairbanger’s Ball

This Saturday, the local band, Hairbanger’s Ball is playing at Daddios in Bloomington ($5 cover).  If you love 80’s hair bands, or were too young to ever experience the phenomenon, you need to be at this show!  They usually play from about 10pm-2am with an hour or so break between sets.  You can expect to hear music from Poison, Whitesnake, Europe, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, etc complete with all the drum-stick-twirling, headbanging stage antics that dominated 80’s rock performances.  So come out and have fun!

Check this band out at hairbangersball.com
