Feel the Noize



f3b2/1241802199-dee-snider.jpgSo you sent your kid to the Paul Green School of Rock Music, thinking he might become the next Jimi Hendrix, Roger Waters or Bono, or at least Thom Yorke or J. Mascis. But suddenly — he’s Axl Rose! Brett Michaels! Dee Snider! Where did it all go wrong?

Parents who hid the ’80s photos of themselves with giant hair, tight ripped jeans and bandanas tied around their arms and thighs will now get to see their kids become the living embodiment of their sordid past. This evening at 6 p.m. at the Grog Shop (2785 Euclid Heights Blvd., Cleveland Hts., 216.321.5588), the students of the Highland Heights branch of the Paul Green School of Rock will present “Come On Feel the Noise” (for accuracy’s sake, that should have been “Cum On Feel the Noize,” after Quiet Riot’s 1983 Top 10 hit — can’t these folks SPELL?). They’ll be performing hits by ’80s hair-metal groups like Guns N’ Roses, Whitesnake, Motley Crue, Poison and Quiet Riot. Tickets are $7 advance, $10 at the door.

If you miss the show tonight, there’s an encore performance at 6 p.m. next Friday, May 15, also at the Grog Shop. — Anastasia Pantsios
