Black Sabbath tribute

When the Pour House’s Alex Harris came up to Ross Bogan of the White/Bogan Duo and told him he wanted to hear the guys play Black Sabbath, Bogan was more than up for the task. “On our recent gigs, we’ve been covering stuff like Rush, Led Zeppelin, and Rage Against the Machine as a duo, which has been, for me — to say the least — challenging,” the pianist notes. “The band [Black Sabbath] is so versatile. They’ve written the hardest rocking songs to date, but can also write beautiful ballads. Then there’s Dio, which is just pure magic. I want people to capture all those elements in the show.” Bogan’s always liked Black Sabbath, but not to the extent that he does now. “It’s definitely something I’m revisiting from my past, but it’s not like I was in my bedroom learning Tony Iommi licks being a piano player. Now that I’m doing this tribute I feel like I’m a kid discovering his favorite band again. I’m obsessed.” Lately, his days begin and end with Sabbath. “Wake up with a little Heaven and Hell, go to sleep with ‘Planet Caravan’ or ‘Fluff,’ he says. “I’ve kind of always wanted to be in a heavy metal band, but I feel I’m too much of a piano dork. Now that I’ve got the tools to play really loud and distorted and make weird sounds, that’s kind of all I want to do.” Lindsay Holler’s Americana band Matadero will open for White Sabbath, while Ross Bon, Steven Sandifer (Dangermuffin), & Friends will get the evening started at 6:30 p.m. with Blues on the Deck. —Kelly Rae Smith TUESDAY
