- 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 plays Plant: Bruce Lamont, beloved by experimental music fans for his work in Bloodiest and Yakuza
