Seeing the names Black 'N Blue and LaBansky on the Hawthorne Theatre marquee might make you forget what year it is. (The $25 ticket price should help to remind you.) One-time Portland glammers Black 'N Blue have called LA home for decades now, but the biggest difference is the absence of original guitarist Tommy Thayer, who now dons the makeup of one Ace Frehley in a pseudo-cover band that charges upward of $150 a ticket. The chances of Thayer joining B'NB for this little homecoming are next to nil, although I did notice KISS has a couple of off-days in Australia at the time of this show. Maybe Ace will step in for Tommy in Black 'N Blue. That would surely make KISS fans' heads implode. MARK LORE
