October 20 marks the 30th anniversary of an evening Philly hair-metal heads will never forget: when Guns N’ Roses played the Trocadero in Chinatown. To mark the occasion, a slew of local bands—folks like Northern Arms, Thorazine, the Flannel Chucks, Johnny Showcase and members of Lizaveta and Misstallica—gather at the venue for a blistering tribute show featuring songs from GNR’s Appetite for Destruction album and other hits from the rock group’s songbook.
