Party in the Rainbow Parking Lot: Coachella isn’t for everyone, but if you want a more low-key outdoor show, with bands of a more mature vintage, head on over to the Rainbow for their twice-annual Party in the Parking Lot. Headliner is former Queensryche man Geoff Tate, while longtime Sunset Strip strutters Lizzy Borden, Faster Pussycat and the Zeros also play. That’s some spectacular hair metal.

We reviewed the Zeros last year at the Whisky, and said that “There’s a gonzo-goofiness about the band, but that never distracts from the songs. Their section of the glam spectrum sees them blend the big glitter tunes of the likes of Slade and Sweet with proto-punk, in a manner reminiscent of the Dictators — brash and infectious. Those 4,3,2,1… Zeros songs, such as “Love’s Not Fair” and “Zero to Mom” are huge fun. And the guys might have a few more miles on the clock but they give it everything. Danny Dangerous is a compelling sight — a sort of deranged, purple-haired mime.”

See the full bill on the flyer below.

Party in the Rainbow Parking Lot: The event takes place at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 16 at the Rainbow.
