Lez Zeppelin is an all-female tribute to Led Zeppelin. The group's appeal goes beyond the hard-rocking, accurate portrayal of its idols — there is feminist empowerment in Shannon Conley singing, "I'm gonna give you every inch of my love." Robert Plant kind of sounded like a girl anyway, so it's not a stretch. All gender issues aside, Lez Zeppelin carves a niche among tributes by taking one of the largest bands in rock history into a small club setting, giving an intimate view of the subject rather than re-creating its spectacle.

Fun Fact: When not acting as frontwoman for Lez Zeppelin, Shannon Conley is a voice actor with more than twenty anime films on her résumé.
