Yo! Here's a 5 minute blast of Sledge Leather live at the Keep It True Festival in Germany, 2011. Sound mix by our friend Lori Castro. Video edit by our friend Oliver Barth.
The clip has some new songs, some old songs, and some sing-a-longs. LOL. This was Leather's first gig back after her 15 year disappearance. She came back to pay tribute to friend and mentor Ronnie James Dio. Leather and Sledge played in SF Metal band Rude Girl years ago, and decided that now was a cool time to get back going on what they'd started.
