Mac Sabbath and the Dinner Rock Revolution

Jazzbones, Sunday, Nov. 4, 8 p.m.
This tribute/parody of Black Sabbath mixes raucous comedy with borderline-horrific theatrics. “The only thing more petrifying than impending health problems resulting from years of overeating is a Mac Sabbath show,” says the band. Show attendees should be prepared to partake in the fun. Mac Sabbath puts on a theatrical, multimedia stage show complete with a smoking grill, laser-eyed clowns, bouncing burgers and many more magical surprises…basically anything and everything an unwary show-goer could ever want in their wildest dreams. Named by Buzzfeed as one of the “13 Metal Bands You Didn’t Know How to React To” and Named as LA’s “Best Tribute Band” by LA Weekly.
