Led Zeppelin 2
- Who they’re paying tribute to: Led Zeppelin 1, although the 1 is silent
- Where they’re from: Chicago
- What sets them apart: they re-stage famous gigs from Zeppelin’s storied history, from the garage days through the excess-loving heyday of The Song Remains the Same
- What you’ll hear: bowed guitars, tectonic drum solos, and Robert Plant-esque vocal histrionics.
- Who puts on Plant’s golden locks: Bruce Lamont, beloved by experimental music fans for his work in Bloodiest and Yakuza
- High praise: “…they do as good a Zep as Zep ever did back in the day.” – Jim DeRogatis, Chicago Sun-TImes
The Altar Bar
For a century, The Altar Bar was a church—which is fitting, now that the Strip District venue has become a house of worship for all denominations of rock and roll fans. Renovated with an abundance of lasers, LED lighting, and projector screens, the three-level musical fortress sends sleek railings and staircases swooping between couches, full bars, and VIP areas. The venue is intimate enough that all fans get a gander of the full-sized stage, which features a runway perfect for grandstanding rockers and very small planes.
