If you grew up in the Bay Area during the hard-rocking ’80s, chances are you’ve seen Y&T on more than one occasion. The band’s hallmark 1981 release, Earthshaker, was a monumental piece of work, replete with screaming guitar solos, bombastic drums and a vocalist (Dave Meniketti) with a near-perfect range. Although the band is now reduced to only one original member—bassist Phil Kennemore passed away recently and Leonard Haze and Joey Alves exited years ago—the current incarnation pays homage to those who have moved on. Expect to hear loads of classic tunes and a handful from the band’s recent album Facemelter. 1417 R Street,
