by BWW News Desk - Oct 20, 2017

Mad Cat Live! to Perform Black Sabbath Vol. 4 at The Gleason RoomMad Cat Live! to Perform Black Sabbath Vol. 4 at The Gleason Room
by BWW News Desk - Sep 14, 2017

Mad Cat kicks off their 18th season with their popular concert series Mad Cat Live performing Black Sabbath's Vol. 4. Mad Cat Live is a series dedicated to presenting transitional albums by major artists and deconstructing them in order to place them into a current context. Sabbath's Vol.4 is a perfect fit for the series, as it marked a tipping point for the band; pushing their creative limits as well as driving them into a state of drug abuse, paranoia, and violence. Just in time for Halloween, this limited engagement will be a must-see live event for fans of Sabbath; a heavy metal band who began their dramatic 50 year history in Birmingham, England as a jazz-blues quartet called Earth, only to find themselves evolving into one of the most influential bands in the history of hard rock. Breathing life into today's generation of punks and rockers, Black Sabbath provided a response to the punctured love bubble of the 60s, an angry war cry to all things soft, light, and filled with pretense. The audacity of their rebellion in the face of a changing nation, is all the more relevant today. (more...)
