Let’s take an opportunity to revisit one of the more ridiculous nights of rock and roll to take place in the DC Metro area so far this year, featuring local comic band Dingleberry Dynasty!
Steel Panther — the over-the-top glam metal quartet hailing from Los Angeles — have been on their 2018 Sunset Strip Live! tour since February, following their fourth studio album Lower The Bar, which was released March 24, 2017. The bawdy comic rockers blew through the DC Metro area (with hairspray in hand) three weeks ago and played a sold-out show at The Fillmore Silver Spring with Dingleberry Dynasty opening.
Last December, self-proclaimed “poop punk” band Dingleberry Dynasty released their fourth studio album, Does Fecal Matter? And now, the six-man comedy band plays the new songs and the old as they open Steel Panther at The Fillmore Silver Spring on Friday, March 30.
“The show was developed to support the book, but now it seems the other way around,” remarked Eddie Izzard to a full house at Weinberg Center for the Art in Frederick, Maryland on Thursday.
Eddie was on tour to chat about his life in promotion of his autobiography, Believe Me: A Memoir of Love, Death, and Jazz Chickens, published in 2017 by Penguin Random House. But the tale of his life remains compelling with or without or book, as Eddie recounted highlights with the aid of slides and Google Earth on a spare stage.
Sometimes you sing lead vocals in a band, and sometimes you simply play tambourine. At least, that’s how relationships and marriages are when you do them right, said Chris Rock in his analysis at MGM National Harbor last week.
And when you are forced to play tambourine, you better play some damn sexy tambourine, Chris quipped.
The inimitable Chris Rock will bring his keen comedic timing and off-color jokes to MGM National Harbor for four nights, beginning tonight, Oct. 18. Chris appears Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in The Theater at MGM National Harbor this week on The Total Blackout Tour, and only a few tickets remain for each performance (although tonight is sold out).
