Steel Panther at Piere's

Steel Panther

Steel Panther have taken their parody of '80s glam metal to a whole new level. Through their undying commitment to sleazy lyrics, skin-tight leather, and genuine musical chops, the L.A. band have now reached the same level of fame as a lot of the groups they're aping. They've headlined Wembley and have toured with the likes of Judas Priest and Guns N' Roses.

Hawthorne Heights

Emo rock legends Hawthorne Heights hit the road across North America with their Behind The Tears: Acoustic Tour! The influential band from Ohio were at the forefront of the mid 2000s emotional post-hardcore movement, with their perfect mix of aggression and vulnerability resonating with a generation of fans seeking music that was both cathartic and relatable.
