Steel Panther @ Rams Head Live- 5/17/2012

Went to see Steel Panther at Ram's Head Live With John n Kate. It was a pretty packed show (Balcony opened). I think Buckcherry (LAME) had a free live show outside, at Power Plant Live, so that may have affected attendance. First time for me seeing them. 
Saw Nick M. at the show, apparently he loves Steel Panther, too.

James Durbin (that guy from American Idol I think) opened. He had a good voice, but I think he shoulda played more covers IMO. We got there and then he started playing a Dio song \m/. He sang well, but I only like 2/4 songs we heard. And one of those was a DIO song. He could sing for Warrant or Dokken or something, man.


The crowd was pretty receptive (I didn't know they were this popular- why couldn't Warrant draw this crowd?) and there was a lot of singing along. Steel Panther looked and played the part, with their homage/parody perfectly executed. Their interactive banter was prevalent, filthy, offensive, and hilarious. I think this is the show I've laughed the most at. Ever. Not PC at all, and that was fantastic.
 No real complaints except the late start time (10:45pm EST). Was a PITA getting up for work today.

At one point near the last few songs before the encore they brought on a bunch of chicks on the stage. There was def some flashing involved. It was also Micheal Starr's birthday, too.

The duet/cover at the end ...I was hoping for a Motley Crue song, especially because I'm kind of sick of Sweet Child/saw Slash a couple weeks ago and they played that then. That guy has some pipes, despite not having many good songs...IMO.

I only recall him from him bringing Judas Priest on American Idol...but singing "You've got another thing comin'" instead of.. ANY OTHER Priest song.
