This is a weird one: Kottack, a band that has the drummer from The Scorpions playing guitar and Tommy Lee's sister playing drums, will be at The Ruby Room on October 30.
Named for James Kottack, who is married to Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee's little sister Athena, the band's drummer, the band plays power-pop akin to Cheap Trick. They're actually pretty decent too, according to the voters of LA-area music awards. Check them out for yourself below.
Tickets are $10.
