The time of Denver’s big 4/20 celebration is finally here, and if you think the metalheads won’t be celebrating, you thought wrong! Westword is putting on a special local show with stoner death metal legends and Colorado natives Cephalic Carnage headlining, and Sleep, one of the greatest stoner doom bands of all time, will be playing here the minute the clock strikes 4:20. Here is a list of all that is metal and taking place here this week.

Right at midnight when 4:20 officially begins, Sleep, one of the mightiest and most epic doom bands of all time, will be putting on a special performance at the Ogden theater.
