85 Avenue A, New York, NY
Brooklyn's Ded Zeppelin came about when Plaid Dracula's Sam Gelertner (guitar) and Ethan Schneider (drums) joined forces with Alex Heigl (bass) of The World's Greatest Detective and Shelter Dogs and Laura Gwynn (vocals) of Ghost Funk Orchestra and Sirs & Madams for a Halloween house show. With black-metal makeup and period-appropriate garb — including a dragon-painted suit for Sam — the band almost quite literally brought the house down at Brooklyn DIY venue the East Williamsburg Econo Lodge during Halloween 2018.

Honing in on a rowdy version of the live Zep sound best heard on bootlegs like Listen to This, Eddie!, the group reunited — this time with Brooklyn drummer-about-town Carlo Minchillo — for a one-off show at St. Vitus with the Brooklyn heavy metal show Two Minutes to Late Night's Van Halen cover band that featured members of Dillinger Escape Plan and War on Women.
