The latest in Fatguy’s series of tribute concerts goes down 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, at Koot’s. In the past, the KZND DJ has organized tributes with local bands paying homage to the likes of The Cure, David Bowie and Alice in Chains, and this time the honors go to heavy metal forefathers Black Sabbath.
The bill includes Decepticide, Unseen Empire and Triskellium, plus what appears to be a band forged just for such an occasion, Fairies Wear Boots (if you caught Turbo Perfecto opening for the Builders and the Butchers at Bear Tooth, you saw them cover the Sabbath tune of the same name). The show is 21 and older, $5 cover.
Sabbath isn’t really much of a stretch for any of these bands, so don’t expect anything as left-field as Glass Halo’s heavy metal reinterpretation of the Cure, and certainly nothing as strange as the Cardigans covering “Sabbath Bloody Sabbath.”
