(Rendezvous) Running across a truly awesome tribute band is rare. For every solid Led Zeppelin cover band, there are easily another 15 to 20 terrible-to-subpar Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, and Kiss tribute bands murking up sports bars on any given night—many of which are located in Everett or Kent. Hand of Doom, Seattle's premiere Black Sabbath tribute band (both in sound and image), are undoubtedly a cut above the rest, replicating metal's forefathers flawlessly. Iron Maiden cover band Maiden Seattle is opening, so show up early for a double dose of classic UK metal by way of the Northwest. With At the Spine and Thunderpouch.
