It's Saturday night and you're a metalhead. There are usually only two options of things you can do. Option A: Sit on your sunken couch, guzzle beers, and smoke doobies with your bros, listening to records while discussing such things as the impact Metallica cutting their hair had on the metal world. Option B: Don your prized denim vest, go to a ripping show, drink some beers, and smoke doobies with your bros. You're in luck, because tonight you can do both in one place (well, maybe smoke the doobies somewhere else). Jim Florentine, Eddie Trunk, and Don Jamieson have taken VH1 Classic's That Metal Show on the road—although for some reason they don't seem to be allowed to call it that. There will no doubt be plenty of metal philosophizing, trivia, and other silliness. Backing them up are Portland's heavy metal gods supreme Spellcaster, and Witchburn, a heavy riff rock band who, despite the fact that there are only two sets of balls between the four of them, are Seattle's ballsiest band. Looks like you get to have your head and bang it too! ARIS WALES
