Sisters of Rock

There's only so much you can say about Heart—"Barracuda," "Crazy on You," Ann and Nancy Wilson, "These Dreams," "Alone." You either have an appreciation for the band's soft to edgy classic-rock stylings or you don't. But the cool thing about this particular Heart concert is that it's at Billy Bob's Texas. Despite its reputation as the world's biggest honky-tonk, Billy Bob's is the best place in North Texas to see an oldies rock show. Chunky guitar chords plus dingy honky-tonk environs equal the most authentic gritty road house setting you'll find this side of a Texarkana truck stop. Highly recommended and totally worth the drive to Fort Worth. Heart performs Friday at 10:30 p.m. at Billy Bob's Texas, 2520 Rodeo Plaza in Fort Worth. Tickets are $15 to $40.
