“The Mockstrosity Tour,” featuring Black Sabbath tribute act Mac Sabbath, mariachi influenced metaleros Metalachi and “Nedal” metal bringers Okilly Dokilly, kicked off earlier this month in Omaha, NE and is set to come to a close next weekend in Los Angeles. The cheese-filled journey made local stops in Buffalo, Syracuse, Amityville, Montclair and New York City at Le Poisson Rouge on March 29.
Performing whimsical tracks like “More Ribs” (“War Pigs”), “Chicken for the Slaves” (“Children of the Grave”), “Frying Pan” (“Iron Man”) and “Pair-a-Buns” (“Paranoid”), Mac Sabbath genuinely kept a surprisingly pack house at LPR (for a Wed. night) amused and entertained for the entirety of their over one hour extravaganza, which boasted smoke machines, lasers, props and more.
Equally comical cover act Metalachi were an expected hit with the Manhattan crowd, who danced away and shouted lyrics to mariachi-ed rock classics such as Guns N’ Roses‘ “Welcome To The Jungle,” Motohead‘s “Ace of Spades,” and Metallica‘s “Master of Puppets.”
Not to be out-shticked by their “Mockstrosity Tour” comrades, Ned Flanders-themed newcomers Okilly Dokilly ignited the night with tracks from their debut album, Howdilly Doodilly, terrifyingly spewing out songs like “Flanderdoodles,” “You’re a Jerk” and “White Wine Spritzer.” The band return to Long Island at Revolution Bar and Music Hall on July 9 with In Lucid Dreams and Misty Mountains [TIX].
Additionally, Mac Sabbath are currently selling a flexi disc of their hit single “Pair-A-Buns,” paired along with the band’s official new coloring activity book, at every stop of the “Mockstrosity Tour” (see all remaining dates).
