Cover bands look and sound just like the real thing, unlike cover audiences, who are just used mannequins holding up lighters. See the real almost-real thing with this GrouponLive deal to see Get the Led Out at The Paramount Theatre in Huntington. For $17, you get one general-admission, standing-room-only ticket for Friday, July 20, at 8 p.m. (up to a $34.50 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.
Philadelphia-based sextet Get the Led Out inhabits the sound and spirit of the biggest rock group of the '70s with a mesmerizing, musically accurate portrayal. Formed out of a passionate love of Led Zeppelin and a need to replenish the nation's dwindling classic-rock reservoirs, the band members inhabit their heroes’ essence, nailing nuances such as Robert Plant's libido-fueled wail in "Black Dog" and Jimmy Page's bowed guitar. Their set stretches across the legendary British group’s career like a pair of eight-legged spandex pants and re-creates a quintessential '70s experience that earns roaring applause from fans and approving gusts of hair-ruffling wind from John Bonham’s ghost.
An oasis for arts-loving crowds tired of taking malfunctioning teleporters to Long Island, the cavernous, recently renovated Paramount Theatre draws in major acts to spare fans stressful commutes. The buxom venue buzzes with a true rock 'n' roll vibe, beaming with a nocturnal color scheme decorated with whimsical local art and exposed brick walls.
