Maleki Theory & UDO at The Whisky

Maleki_UDOU.D.O., Slick N Wicked, Maleki Theory, Blak, The Whisky, 04/24/13

The world famous Whisky on the Sunset Strip was about to be taken over by a metallic force known all over the world as the mighty U.D.O. Fronted by the legendary Udo Dirkschneider (aka the original Accept vocalist), this Teutonic terror was in the Southland, concluding a short but successful tour in support of their various re-releases on AFM Records.

Maleki Theory, from the City of Angels, who enveloped the Whisky with their own spirited brand of rock and roll. More on the Alice In Chains and Tool side of the spectrum, Maleki Theory brought in quite an audience, and seems genuinely excited to be opening to the legendary U.D.O. Front man Chris Maleki has a dynamic stage presence and delivers the vocals with a stunning sense of conviction. The rest of the Theory members definitely shined, including Jimmy Silcox on guitars, Chris Lepre on drums, and Darin Kulkens on bass. A thoroughly professional band with the tunes to back it up all up, Maleki Theory has an across the board appeal that should garner them a good amount of new converts – and they certainly won more than a few new fans at the Whisky. Study up on the Maleki Theory and be ready to party it up!
