Beasties Boys
NYC rappers the Beastie Boys and Texas metal band Pantera wouldn't seem to have much in common, apart from the fact that both started in 1981 and each has lost a key member within the last decade.

But both group’s legacies continue to live on — especially this coming Saturday, when local musicians will pay tribute to them with a free all-ages show at the Black Sheep.

Brass Monkey, the Beastie Boys tribute band, features members of local metal bands Malakai, Tree of Woe and Grindscape, while the role of Pantera will be played by Goya, the shape-shifting cover band whose past repertoire has ranged from Carl Douglas’s “Kung Fu Fighting” to Cee-Lo’s “FU,” with AC/DC, New Order and Lady Gaga along the way.

The all-ages show begins at 8 p.m. with A Sin Thing opening.
