STEPHEN PEARCY
10 p.m., Juanita's. $25 addv., $30 d.o.s.

One of the gnarliest hair metal acts to thrust its way into the national spotlight, Ratt spent the mid-'80s turning Aqua Net and sonic sleaze into radio gold and strip club anthems with songs like "Round and Round" and "Lay It Down." Last year, the band made a noble attempt at a 21st century comeback with "Infestation," its first full-length since 1999. Since, the band has filed their "indefinite hiatus" paperwork and, now, Ratt founder and frontman Stephen Pearcy is taking to the road with ex-members of White Lion, W.A.S.P. and Anthrax to showcase his solo material. All indications point towards him bringing the sinister pop-metal riffs and high metal yowl that set his band off so well decades ago.
