Brown Sabbath at ACL Live. When Austin’s top border funk outfit Brownout did a night of revisionist Ozzy Osbourne covers as a one-off in 2013, they had no idea classic metal infused with global rhythm and groove would become the sleeper hit of 2014. After a killer Pachanga Fest appearance, the band wowed audiences across the country on tour. A friend of the band caught Ozzy himself raving about “some Mexican guy who sounds just like me” on Sirius Radio, and later this spring the band will travel to the Mexican Riviera to support the metal titan at OzzFiesta. For this gig, Ghostland Observatory’s Aaron Behrens and the Sword’s Kyle Shutt are along for the ride. $19.50-$29.50. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com.
