Hot for Harley: A Van Halen Tribute Band and Harley-Davidson
Harley-Davidson and a Van Halen tribute band? Can anything beat that?
Well, I'd personally like it more if Nine Inch Nails came to town and played in a dingy old basement, but I'll take what I can get.
Next Halen, the Van Halen tribute band, will be performing at Wild West Harley-Davidson in Lubbock, located at 5702 58th Street. You'll "jump" for joy with free cold drinks, food trucks, Kona ice and a mechanical bull riding competition.
Oh yeah, that bull riding competition? There's a $250 prize involved, in case you were wondering. I'm sure you're thinking "you really got me" once I mentioned prize money, huh?
Okay, okay. I'll cut it out with the Van Halen puns...for now.
You won't exactly be "dancing the night away" with this shindig, since it'll last from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oh, whoops. I made another Van Halen pun, didn't I? Man, I'm "on fire." Alright, I'm done for real now.
Next Halen boasts on their website:
With meticulous attention to detail, every aspect of the show has been recreated. The fun ranges from the skill level in the music, authentic equipment, and even the stage antics.
Whether you are a fan of Roth or Hagar, Next Halen will bring the memories flooding back in.
Overall, this is a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon in the Hub City, especially if you're already a Van Halen fan.
