‘Thunderstruck’ bluegrass band Steve ’n’ Seagulls to rock Boise on Saturday

Thunderstruck? Definitely. Your head might explode when you see hillbilly headbangers Steve ’n’ Seagulls unleash their breakout YouTube hit — a bluegrass cover of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.” These Finnish goat ropers also pummel Iron Maiden’s “The Trooper” with banjo. And crush Pantera with polka accordion. Is Steve ’n’ Seagulls the first tongue-in-cheek band to do breakneck bluegrass? Nope, but it’s the best. The musicianship, the creative song arrangements, the hilarious live videos — it’s a supremely cool combo. Just like there’s only one Steven Segal (the inspiration for the group’s name), there’s only one Steve ’n’ Seagulls. Prepare to mosh, American rednecks.

8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11, Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., Boise. $15. TicketWeb. $17 at the door.
