Sabotage vs. Guerrilla Radio Live at Washingtons

On Nov. 1, witness the most anticipated match in the history of local tribute bands. In one corner will be Northern Colorado’s very own Beastie Boys tribute band called Sabotage. In the other corner is a Rage Against The Machine tribute band called Guerrilla Radio.

Sabotage brings together musicians from 20XIII, The Nu Classics, Pretty Noise and Qbala Music, and their respective backgrounds help them to vividly recreate the blend of hip-hop, rock and funk that made the Beastie Boys one of the most respected groups of the last few decades.

For Guerrilla Radio, local artists from all over the Fort Collins/Denver music scene came together to pay tribute to the righteous band of our generation and to continue the movement of awareness and consciousness through music. Popular for their high-energy sets and hard-hitting, accurate renditions. Currently holding the title belts for Leftapalooza and the FoCoMA Tribute Championship, they’re sure to bring the hard-hitting energy to the stage.
