Saturday, long, flowing locks, incendiary guitar solos and power ballads will be out in force at Rhythm & Brews during a three-band tribute extravaganza to hair metal and hard rock icons.

Guns N' Roses tribute artist Appetite for Destruction will share the stage with Poison cover band Poison'd and Red, White and Crüe, a tribute to Mötley Crüe. The date is a stop on the Kings of Hollywood Tour, a reference to the Sunset Strip neighborhood in L.A., where Mötley Crüe, Poison and Guns N' Roses all got their start in the 1980s.

All three bands recreate the look of their icons, from guitar legend Slash's signature top hat to Vince Neil's golden tresses. Each tribute is named for a noteworthy release in their icons' discography, and the set will include hits such as Guns N' Roses' "Welcome to the Jungle" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," Poison's "Talk Dirty to Me" and "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" and Mötley Crüe's "Girls, Girls, Girls" and "Dr. Feelgood."

The show starts at 9:30 p.m. Cover is $10. For more information, visit www.rhyth-brews.com or call 267-4644.
