This is all you need for the best night ever: 1) Metal. 2) Sandwiches. 3) Laughter. That's why local food cart Big-Ass Sandwiches—whose mammoth sammies have fueled many a Mercury lunch break—have invited not just the righteously heavy Red Fang to play their second birthday bash, they've also got comedian Brian Posehn and Portland's own Ron Funches and Ian Karmel, who will more than deliver in the chortle department.
