In honor of the Judas Priest / Deep Purple concert at BB&T Pavilion (9/9) being announced this week, we started getting nostalgic, thinking about one of the greatest/funniest concert documentaries of all-time, ‘Heavy Metal Parking Lot’. Here’s our favorite moments from this ‘masterpiece’ as well as the full 16 minute video.
This famous/infamous documentary was shot in 1986 in the Washington DC parking lot of the Cap Center.
Here are our favorite Heavy Metal Parking Lot characters….
- The Dude in DC101 shirt singing ‘Living After Midnight’ – this guy jumps off of the screen. His energy is infectious & his love of Priest, quite evident.
- Graham of Dope – the shirtless Graham from ‘the west coast’ has an interesting idea about how to bring the country together with a large marijuana cigarette.
- The Jump His Bones girl – this sassy red head, has some naughty thoughts about what she would do if she encountered members of the band backstage.
- The Tiger Print Outfit dude – his outrage for punk music and Madonna is almost as entertaining as his full length tiger print outfit.
