Although many metal bands came after Black Sabbath, it kind of seems like everyone knows they won't be able to do it better. That means you can either try to carve out your own metal niche—words like doom and sludge come to mind—or you can do what many metal fans do and go the cover band route. 

Take, for instance, Brown Sabbath. The all-Latino cover band takes your favorite Black Sabbath songs and adds new flair with a horn section and bongos that turns the hard rocking classic jams into something much more funky and danceable.

Then, there's the dudes that will be hitting the Club Congress (311 E. Congress St.) stage on Saturday, July 11. Mac Sabbath is, you could say, a uniquely American take on Sabbath. Blending the worlds of McDonalds and the iconic metal band, you get a bunch of weird costumes straight out of a McDonaldland acid trip nightmare and punny songs like "Frying Pan" and "Pair-a-Buns." It's definitely going to be a spectacle, to say the very least. 


You can check out this drive thru, super sized treatment of Black Sabbath on Saturday with doors at 7 p.m. and local act Sugar Stains opening up the show. It's a 21 and over event (sorry, no Satanic Happy Meals at this show). Tickets can be found online in advance for $15, along with more information, on the Club Congress website.

Besides, if you absolutely hate it (and I doubt you even could), you can simply pull through to Hotel Congress' next window, as it were, and dance all night to the Saturdaze resident DJs Bob Felix, JALPH, Andrew Shuta and Sid the Kid in the courtyard for free.
