2012-11-01 Steel Panther, Melkweg, Amsterdam

Steel Panther has found their way to europe this year. And for the third time this year we took the time to see them on stage. With Steel Panther you don't expect foreplay, And we didn't get any, at least not something to write home about. We are sorry to say but The Dirty Denims aren't a band to go out of your way to see them. This female fronted Happy Hard Rock band indeed sound like Hard Rock but nothing more than that. The singer sound like a wounded crow. The vocals are allowed to be raw in this style but not off key........
The best way to look at Steel Panther is not taking them too serious, they don't do that either. Between songs it is more like a stand-up comedy show in which Michael Starr and Satchel are engaged in a far pissing contest. The songs are played with style and matching dance steps, just as all the hair metal bands did in the 80's. We are not sure but it really looked like they didn't play all the songs completely live. At some points it looked like playback, this can of course also mean they play exceptionally good. But does this really matter. They give you the show you knew you were getting. The songs are funny, the crowd plays along with the band. A lot of people dressing up in style and some girls showing their boobs from the public. So if you would like to see a perfect orchestrated show, go see Steel Panther. If you want to see a band that is make jokes about their band mates and themselves, go see Steel Panther. And when you want to see a band that does something different each time you see them, who are real and don't give you the impression it's all a joke, go see some other band......


We would like to apologize for the poor photo quality, we didn't get a photo pass so we couldn't get close to the band and we weren't able to bring a real camera.
