A good impersonation can be indistinguishable from the real thing, which is why Method actors are no longer allowed to play dictators. Take in a safer form of imitation with this Groupon to see Rhymin’ N Stealin’ – The Original Beastie Boys Tribute Band at House of Blues Dallas. For $8, you get one general-admission ticket for Saturday, March 17, at 9 p.m. (up to a $16.83 value, including all Ticketmaster fees). Doors open at 8 p.m.
Rockin’ the house with what the Dallas Observer calls “spot-on depictions and impossibly fun offerings,” local goodtime instigators Rhymin' N Stealin' keep the St. Patrick’s Day party rolling with their fastidious duplication of a Beastie Boys concert. From selling out their inaugural performance to charming B-Boys and B-Girls across the land, the improve-comedians-turned-MCs replicate Ad-Rock's nasally sneer, Mike D's less nasally sneer, and MCA's throaty shout as they plow through a set of old-school hits laced with party-time bombast and charming comic similes. The trio encourages further noise making from the crowd with zany costume changes, live scratch sets from Mix Master G, and more energy than two sweater factories briskly rubbed together. Starting the St. Pat’s twilight revelry, Rage Against the Machine tribute band Prophets of RAGE rally the audience with a pocket full of politically charged rap metal.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
