Eight Gigs: Ratt

Fri., April 8, 6:30 p.m., Ace of Spades, $20

Fans of ’80s heavy metal will reminisce about the days of feathered bangs, Aqua Net, leather jackets, tight pants and the music of Ratt during its Re-Invasion Tour. Expect to hear classic songs from albums like Out of the Cellar and Dancing Undercover, all of which launched the Los Angeles-based glam band over international radio waves. Although singer and founding member Stephen Pearcy won’t be the one singing the original music, songs like “Round and Round” and “Slip of the Lip” will still fill the stage. 1417 R Street, www.rattwebsite.com.
