Sic (Slipknot Tribute)
Sic performs in 2012
Warning: contains strong language
With their matching jumpsuits and horror film-inspired masks, the members of Slipknot-covering band Sic are dead ringers for the heavy metal act to which they pay roaring tribute. But the nine musicians don’t just match their appearances to those of the famous Des Moines thrashers. In between headbangs and bellowed readings from a roadie’s journal, they unleash uncannily similar growls and frenetic guitar shreds while belting out hits such as “Sic,” “Eyeless,” and “Before I Forget.”
####Blackened (Metallica Tribute)
Blackened performs "Enter Sandman"
Chicago-based Blackened will recreate the jackhammer jolt and horse-like stamina of Bay Area legends Metallica during a set of greatest hits that includes chart-topping classics “Enter Sandman” and deep-cut fan favorites such as “Creeping Death.” Singer John Dent will look to nail James Hetfield’s signature growl down to every “oohwa,” “yeai-yeah,” and “diiieya,” as lead guitarist James Snedeker hammers like Kirk Hammett, bassist Mike Streicher erases memories of Jason Newsted, and drummer Vince Ochwat crushes the drums and auctions Basquiats like Lars Ulrich.
With two stories, four bars, a massive soundboard, and 12,600 square feet of room for music to roam, the entertainment complex of Mojoes polishes sonic heirlooms and gives fans breathing room for full-lunged sing-alongs. Polished hardwood floors accentuate a cozy, couch-laden lounge area—a decided class that extends to the concert area in the form of a giant chandelier hanging overhead.
