Tacoma bands to play covers

By weeklyvolcano on September 28, 2009



Saturday, Oct.3 The Fucking Eagles, Girl Trouble and The Plastards will play only covers at The Acme Grub Cage. It will be the kind of event that, if your expectations are calibrated correctly, could be epic.

Will they play the rock anthems: “Livin' on a Prayer,” “Pour Some Sugar On Me,” “I Can't Drive 55,” “Rock 'n' Roll All Night” and “Highway to Hell”?

Or will they play the classic hip-hop hits: “Rapper's Delight,” “Just a Friend,” “Insane in the Membrane,” “Me, Myself, and I,” “The Humpty Dance” and “Baby Got Back”?

Here is what Bobble Tiki hopes they play: “Sweet Jane,” “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” “Radio Free Europe,” “Take the Skinheads Bowling,” “Touch Me I'm Sick,” “Cut Your Hair,” “Teenage Kicks” and “Sooner Or Later.”

What do you hope to hear?
