It seems like hair metal will never go away with the revival of bands that use too much hairspray and are really into whammy bars. Lillian Axe was one of the hundreds of ‘80s metal bands that went from writing heavy metal songs to soft-spoken acoustic ballads. Often regarded as one of the unknown gems of the ‘80s, they’re back with an edgier sound, a new album, and are still playing their hits. They will be playing on Sept. 9 at Mexicali Live in Teaneck and at Don Hill’s in NYC on Sept. 10. lillianaxe.com.
