Lez Zeppelin

With Living Stereo. Thursday, November 16, at the Beachland Ballroom.


Lez Zeppelin are girls -- pretty ones. And their rendition of "Dazed and Confused" is a total scorcher. Steph Paynes does a great Jimmy Page, complete with taking a violin bow to her axe.

It's so good, in fact, that we couldn't help but wonder how the most famous and sleazy saga in rock history might have been different if the Brit bombers had been a quartet of goddesses from the get-go. Here's how it might have gone: 1) The cover of Led Zeppelin I features two zeppelins. 2) The drum-driven instrumental is titled "Moby Clit," not "Moby Dick." 3) Zeppelin records twice as many albums and tours well into the '90s, because it's not caught up in juvenile cock-rock antics.
