LA’s ribald rockers play with their wood
Forget what you know about Steel Panther, tonight is a stripped-down (not like that), acoustic show to promote their new CD/DVD Live From Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage.
Instead of big screens and pyros we get a no-nonsense evening of unplugged tunes. Acoustic or not, to the ardent ‘Fanther’ it doesn’t matter if they’re straddling cannons Cher-style or humming on a kazoo, hence why there’s a queue halfway down Oxford Street peppered with guys sporting blond wigs and bandanas. It’s those same super-fans who belt out Party Like Tomorrow Is The End Of The World as soon as the show starts, and then it’s full steam ahead with classic Panther tunes and their unique brand of banter (banther?).
