Most hair dryers are rated at least 800 watts to as much as 1875 watts. Given that, a 500 watt generator will NOT run a hair dryer. You would need at least a 2000 watt generator, just be be on the safe side.

So it might run off a car battery, with an inverter to supply the correct voltage if needed. <<>> A 300 watt public address sound system will operate very nicely from as small as a 500 watt AC generator.

At full power, 1000 of them. Did you really mean 10,000 watt bulbs? They do exist, but they're not at all common, and it's hard to imagine where you'd need a thousand of them. Most theatrical lights, which are considerably brighter than home fixtures, have bulbs in the 500-1000 watt range at most, with a few professional-grade fixtures going up to maybe 2500 watts. A ten thousand watt bulb might be used in a lighthouse, or perhaps in a searchlight.
