There’s no doubt about it — this is an incredibly intriguing double bill. Dinah Cancer’s 45 Grave are considered pioneers in deathrock and horror punk — dark and dastardly purveyors of the macabre, with a charismatic frontwoman and decades of amazing music. They’re sharing a bill with Mac Sabbath, the McDonalds-themed Black Sabbath tribute. And, by the looks of it, Mac Sabbath are playing last! We doubt that 45 Grave gives a crap — they’ll relish the chance to perform in front of some new potential fans, possibly a younger crowd than they generally draw. Meanwhile, Mac Sabbath can throw out their silly ditties at some old punks. It’s a win-win. Mormon punks Tartar Control, straight outta Utah, also play.

Mac Sabbath and 45 Grave play with Tartar Control at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 22 at the Observatory.
