REO Speedwagon, Pat Benatar

When: Thu., Sept. 2, 6 p.m. 2010

Watch an old '60s drama like Route 66 and you'll witness reaction shots long enough for a bathroom break and emoting broad enough to play to the back row of Giants Stadium. It's a cultural artifact that doesn't stand the test of time. Similarly, REO Speedwagon's sentimental late-'70s/ early-'80s pap makes year-old milk sound refreshing. They haven't "Roll[ed] With the Changes"; they want nothing more than to read from the same page over and over again. Pat Benatar at least had momentary salience as the rare female rocker before succumbing to overwrought musical bombast. You'll feel the love, all right. Also, Tyler Bryant.—Chris Parker

Price: $40-60
