Tim Heidecker for San Bernardino County Distric Attorney! Tim Heidecker for San Bernardino County Distric Attorney! Candidate Timothy Heidecker is introduced by electronic dance music sensation DKR. He proudly preached his stances on topical issues such as stopping medicare benefits for those who do not contribute to our society — like the bedridden and the elderly. Another pertinent platform being eradicating all crime from San Bernardino. Absolutely all of it. His Trump rally-esque attitude was shining through recently in an appearance at The Fillmore Silver Spring.

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.
