Off-Ramp Song of the Week: We (Heart) 'Barracuda'

Off-Ramp's Song of the Week is a throwback to one of the best songs to come out of the 70s, Heart's "Barracuda," a "tribute" to an awful manager.

And next week, you can see Heart tribute band Dog 'n' Butterfly take on Fleetwood Mac cover band Mirage in a 1970s pop rock fan's DREAM. (Get it? "These Dreams" and "Dreams?" Bam!)

Dog 'n' Butterfly formed in 2005, has apparently been endorsed by Heart themselves, and performed on AXS TV's "World's Greatest Tribute Bands:"

Then we've got the five-piece cover band Mirage: Visions of Fleetwood Mac, which has also appeared on AXS TV:

The dueling tribute bands will be performing two Southern California dates together:

The Gaslamp in Long Beach on Saturday, December 17th.

The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano on Friday, December 23rd.
