Last Friday night at the Riverside Municipal Auditorium was the KCAL presentation of Steel Panther, complete with Jimbo on stage for an early intro of the opening act. I have heard for years that this was an act I needed to see, and photograph, but I had no idea what I was in for. If you have seen Steel Panther before, you will understand what I mean by that, but if not…. I honestly have no words to accurately describe this show.

Wikipedia calls Steel Panther “an American comedy rock/glam metal band”, but I would describe this show as more in depth than that. Yes, they are a take off of the old 80’s hair bands, but what makes the show special is that they commit to the characters 100%. It’s comedy, and it’s glam rock, but make no mistake…. these guys are really good musicians.

There were times during the show that I almost forgot to shoot photos. Sometimes it was because they said something so over the top, so raunchy, that I started laughing out loud. Other times it was because the song choice was so spot on. I want to see them again, now that I know what to expect. I mean when Bassist Lexxi Foxx started primping in the mirror I was so busy laughing I was missing great photos.

Opening the show was a band called Hillbilly Herald, another LA based band. The Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer mic stand set the tone for what was a solid rock performance. Vocalist Jimmy Herald is active on stage, and puts on a show that is fun to watch, but more importantly sounds good.

As usual, thanks to Live Nation in Riverside. They not only managed to bring Steel Panther to Riverside, but they were also fantastic to work with. There is a full gallery of images below, and I hope you enjoyed the show. If you were there, let me know how you liked it in the comment section below.
