Vermont has never been a hotbed of arena rock, mostly because we don’t really have many arenas. But once upon a time — the 1980s, specifically — local rockers 8084 aimed to change that. In their prime, the hard-charging hair metal act shared stages with the likes of Warrant, Toto and Blue Oyster Cult, owing to their high-flying vocal chops and instrumental prowess matched only by their teased bangs. Following a well-received reunion tour in 2012, the band is back in action at South Burlington’s Higher Ground Ballroom this Saturday, June 25, with local openers the Contois School of Music Band.
Price: $12/15. AA
