The official Metal Suckfest pre-game was a smash last night, with Mayhem, Keep of Kalessin, Hate, Abigail Williams and Woe ripping the Gramercy Theatre’s arseholes like they’ve never been ripped before. Tonight we ratchet up the tension with the fest’s first official night; there’s still time to buy tickets here or at the door of the show. Doors are at 5pm and the first of 10 bands goes on at 5:30, so get there early!
But the fun doesn’t end when the fat lady sings (which in this case, I guess, is Municipal Waste)! After the show we’ll be partying with the bands from Suckfest at Brooklyn’s best metal bar, the legendary DUFF’s, just under the Williamsburg Bridge on the Brooklyn side. Come and booze it up with us into the wee hours of Saturday morning with metal rocking on the jukebox all night long.
And then, Saturday night, after Cynic cap the fest’s second day, we’ll be doing it all over again at our favorite “Bourbon, Beer, Rock” standby Idle Hands Bar on Avenue B and 2nd St in Manhattan. It’s only a $7 cab ride from the Gramercy, AND EVERYONE WITH A METAL SUCKFEST TICKET STUB GETS A FREE SHOT OF WHISKEY! (assuming you’re over 21… duh), so you’ve really got no excuse not to pile into a cab with your buddies and head on down. Idle Hands’ selection of bourboun and beer is aces — make sure you enjoy it.
See you tonight!
