It’s the ultimate arena rock mishmash: Axl’s snaky hips and glass-cracking falsetto meets Def Leppard’s pyrotechnics meets Ozzie’s thing for animals and it’s all wrapped in Prince’s favorite blouse.

Hairball returns for its fourth annual pre-Fourth concert, Party in the Park with Hairball.

The band channels hairband faves like KISS, Motley Crue, Journey, Aerosmith and more with its classic hits and frequent wardrobe changes.

Arch Allies, a tribute band that covers Styx, Journey and REO Speedwagon, opens. Also in the lineup, a newbie to the local stage: Junk FM. The band covers an eclectic mix of seemingly unrelated musical acts including Jet, Robin Thicke, Green Day, House of Pain, Johnny Cash and Bruno Mars.
