Metal Beatles

The lowdown -- Ever wonder what it might look like if the Beatles wore leather? Or if Metallica danced to catchy pop tunes onstage? Tonight is your chance to find out ... sort of. Beatallica is a whole new kind of tribute band. Members Ringo Larz, Kliff McBurtney, Kirk Hammettson and Jamz Lennfield fuse the sounds of the Beatles and Metallica, two of America's most influential -- and dissimilar -- artists.

If you go -- Beatallica plays tonight at Fletchers, 701 S. Bond St. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10-$13. Call 410-558-1889 or visit fletch ersbar.com or beatallica.org.
