There are approximately 2,749 Led Zeppelin tribute bands plying their trade in small clubs around the globe. One notable subset is the “all-female Led Zeppelin tribute band.” The East Coast has Lez Zeppelin, and the West Coast has Zepparella, a foxy and ferocious foursome from San Francisco. Ol’ Robert Plant can’t hit too many of his notes anymore, but Zepparella’s powerhouse frontwoman Anna Kristina certainly can, and the rest of the band brings skill and smarts to all those famous riffs and rhythms. Granted, here in Seattle we ultimately prefer to hear Heart’s Ann and Nancy Wilson throw down on some classic Zeppelin tunes, but Zepparella is the next best thing. MICHAEL ALAN GOLDBERG
