Music Scene: Week of May 21, 2010
If you dig Black Sabbath tunes — specifically the 1970–75 era — you don’t want to miss cover band Irony Man, performing at 10 p.m. Friday, May 21, at Tenacious Brothers Pub, 118 S. Seventh St.
A visual of the Salt Lake City-based band’s stage performance is described in a news release bio: “Irony Man is all about embodying the specific vibe of the original and highly influential Black Sabbath songs.”
Performers Jeremy Sundias (vocals/Ozzy Osbourne), Andy Upchurch (bass/Geezer Butler), Bob Sutton (drums/Bill Ward) and Russ Millhem (guitar/Tony Iommi) “wear costumes while performing to meet this goal. We want to make it more like the Black Sabbath experience, like we are the band. For all those people that never got to see the original Sabbath during the early ‘70s, we want to give them that experience,” Upchurch wrote.
“I try to channel the ghost of Ozzy,” Sundias wrote, “Ozzy hasn’t had a soul for the last 10 years. It’s been cruising around in limbo, so I try and channel that, and every once in a while I get it.”
Tickets are $5 for the ages 21 and older show.
