No one judges you at the glory hole – especially not the mighty Steel Panther.  Warriors fighting for beer, babes and boobs, the heavy metal band with hilariously dirty lyrics came back to Irving Plaza in New York City for what I believe was a sold out show – and they of course killed it.  I was there to take some photos of the fun…

Notes:

One positive (and a negative to some extent) about shooting Steel Panther is that the lighting is fantastic.  As I’ve said before the last time I shot them, these guys WANT you to photograph them.  The band and their publicists have realized the importance of promotion via concert photos, and as such, have a lighting person that makes things as easy but interesting for photographers (and fans as well) as possible.  I say its a negative also, just because its so easy.  There are very, very few heavy metal bands at this level (the only exception being Megadeth) that have this kind of lighting.

I keep saying this too – with the success of Steel Panther, which is a throwback to 80’s glam metal band with a comedic twist, would anyone want to start a 90s grunge band with a comedic twist with me?  I think it would be prettty sweet.
