Gramma Rock

"Love Is A Battlefield." "Hit Me With Your Best Shot." "We Belong." "Heartbreaker." Sure, you've heard these songs sung (and/or whistled) by your mom, by poseurs on American Idol, by 12-year-olds in their Flingy McDingdong Rockband bands and by every possible combination of drunk chick plus off-key at karaoke night. But have you paid to hear them sung by a cleave-bearing, heavily made-up senior? At 8 p.m. this Thursday see if Pat Benatar (alongside her lead guitarist hubby Neil Giraldo) can still jam out with her clam out at the House of Blues, 2200 N. Lamar St. Tickets are $27.50 to $55, depending on how close you wanna be to her decades upon decades of wisdom. (We advise paying for the cheap seats to help keep the dream alive.)
