The last time we tackled this seminal band, it was Halloween of 2010 - appropriate timing, but Black Sabbath is great any time of year.
Join us on Wednesday May 1st at Martyrs' and Friday May 3rd at Wire as we embrace the deep roots of heavy metal, and become Black Sabbath. Decades before Ozzy was a reality TV joke, he was a complete bad-ass front man, and he and his mates set out to create what they hoped would be rock and roll versions of horror films. They made some of the most purely dark music of all time. This is a band that once rented a castle, just so they could rehearse in the dungeon. Wonderfully ridiculous.
The guitarmada will be in full effect to make evil mirth, and our old pal Kerry Devine will join us to sing a few; come see if we kick him out for drinking too much like Sabbath did to Ozzy in 1979. We’ll feature many songs from the platinum selling eponymous first record, dive head-long into the coke-binged excess of Masters of Reality, and give you a taste of the Ronny James Dio era as well. Critics hated Sabbath, but the people, they loved them. We bet some of you still do too.
