Portland Metal Winter Olympics


White Owl Social Club (map) Southeast
Thu., Jan. 9, 9 p.m. 2014 21+


Two years ago, Portland's most enthusiastic headbanger, Nathan Carson, created the Portland Metal Winter Olympics as a way to introduce budding local heavy-rock bands to the city's tastemakers and fans through the guise of a friendly, single-elimination bracket-style competition. After a year off with Carson concentrating his efforts on his band Witch Mountain and his day job as a booking agent, the PMWO is back. If tonight's lineup is any indication, the field of competitors this time around is deep. Going head-to-head is Satyress, a female-led group of Sabbath/BÖC-worshipping doomsters, and the creeping, growling sludge of Mursa. Keep your hands warm and your devil horn salute at the ready, metalheads; the winter looks to be long, dark, and loud. ROBERT HAM
