Steel Panther concert

Tonight I went to the Steel Panther concert in Brussels.  It’s the first time I’ve seen them live, although I’ve watched plenty of YouTube videos so I knew what to expect.  They certainly know how to put on a show – there was great music, plenty of laughs and a few girls showing their boobs!  Not for the faint-hearted, but great fun and they got a huge reaction from the audience.

The stars of the show are the singer, Michael Starr, and the guitarist, Satchel.  Both of them are at the top of the game and can give any of the better known rock singers or guitarists a run for their money.  Satchel is a brilliant guitarist, and he did a great solo section in the middle of the show, playing drums and guitar simultaneously for part of it.

As well as this year’s acoustic album, Live from Lexxi’s Mom’s Garage, they are set to release their next album in February 2017.

Here’s a video of one of their best known songs, Community Property.  They do tend to be a bit rude, so don’t watch it if you’re likely to be offended.  This version is actually slightly cleaned up!
