Since the early 1970s, the rockin’ chick-fronted powerhouse that is Heart has been kicking ass and taking names with every new single they release. Almost thirty years later, the group has forced their way back into the top ten after a long and rocky comeback that began in the mid ‘80s. Remember when you first heard that riff in “Crazy On You” and wondered why you hadn’t been listening to this band your entire life? Well, now you can hear them live and really watch them wail, old songs and new. Lemme get a “Ooh! Barracuda!” Heart plays at 7pm, Tuesday, Sept. 21, at the Cuthbert Amphitheater; $35 gen., $50 res.
