Back to the 80s with hairspray and lycra


It was cover band central last Saturday at spots around Tacoma. Hair Nation, the Puget Sound’s go-to band of all things hairspray and lycra tights, straight from the pinnacle of hair bands played to an energetic crowd at the Swiss on Saturday. Pulling for the likes of Bon Jovi, AC/DC, Twisted Sister and Whitesnake, Hair Nation revived music from an era when the men looked like women and the women looked like even hotter women, in a “This is Spinal Tap” sort of way, filled with cliches and gimmicks from the bygone era of the 1980s.

Across town the same night, Exit 88 played the Stonegate with covers from the 1980s and 1990s up to more modern tunes from Green Day and Kid Rock.
