Happy 4/20! Now go check out some live music!
While I won't be partaking in the festivities (outside of the live music itself), it seems like 4/20 is just one of those "unofficial holidays" that screams METAL!
Which is why I am wishing all you loyal readers a Happy 4/20 and, more importantly, informing you of some metal shows going on around Iowa City.
The Mill, 120 E. Burlington, is putting on an event aptly titled "4/20 Fest" featuring music from stoner rock band Snow Demon, the rock juggernaut Superchief and punk-metal hybrid Droids Attack. All of these bands are 100% Metal Show Guaranteed to rock 'n' roll. Best part of it all? Admission is free. Doors open at 9 p.m.
The second metal show on 4/20 takes place at Gabe's, 330 E. Washington, and offers a little more diversity in terms of sound, with the Primus-inspired and bass-heavy Illth, the doomy Dredge and metalcore act Spanish Harlem. Doors for this show open at 8:30 p.m. and the show kicks off at 9:30 p.m. Admission is only $4 for this one.
No matter how you plan on celebrating 4/20, make sure to fit in a little time for some live music and maybe even a trip for some munchies later!
