Mac Sabbath

When: Thu., March 17, 8:30 p.m. 2016

The two-year-old Mac Sabbath is a patently ridiculous parody band, but of what, you can never be quite sure. Yes, the anonymous quartet delivers reverent takes on Black Sabbath hits, with most every note rehearsed and faithfully delivered; the words, though, are about fast food, so “Sweet Leaf” becomes “Sweet Beef” and “Iron Man” becomes “Frying Pan.” But Mac Sabbath’s members arrive costumed as evil permutations of McDonald’s characters: Ozzy is a Joker-like Ronald who douses the front row in vomit. It’s a send-up of fast-food culture and the taste bud control the corporations behind it somehow wield. Is the ruse enough to sustain an entire show? Well, maybe, so long as Mac Sabbath doesn’t super-size its own set. —Grayson Haver Currin
