You’ll be treated to an awesome headlining performance by instrumental blackened metalers Ghosts of Glaciers, as well as opening sets by Sugar Skulls & Marigolds, thrashers Muscle Beach, and Wicked Thunder, all for a modest price.

Decibel Magazine Tour Featuring At The Gates and [email protected] Summit Music Hall – Friday, April 3rd
Black Pussy @ Lost Lake Lounge – Saturday, April 4th
Black Pussy are a band that have gotten a lot of flack for their creative name, but with a little research, you’ll find out that they got the moniker from the original name of the Rolling Stone’s “Brown Sugar,” which was thrown out as the record label deemed it too offensive. With this awesome back story, Black Pussy have been making some killer rock n’ roll, touring the country, and speaking out against racism and sexism. Joining them on this terrific bill are Denver’s awesome, female fronted, Dead Temple, and Cloud Catcher.
Who: Black Pussy, Dead Temple, Cloud Cather
Doors: 8:00 PM/ show starts at 9:00 PM
Cost: $8 in advance, $10 the day of
Metal Injection Presents: Weedeater and King [email protected] Lost Lake Lounge – Sunday, April 5th
Weedeater are a band that should need no introduction, especially in a city where weed is legal for recreational use. And if you haven’t caught them live yet, you are in for a real treat. Vocalist and bassist Dixie Collins always puts on a stellar and drunkenly staggering performance, and opening acts King Parrot should be a real treat as well. Be prepared to blaze up for this one if you are a smoker, as it marks the official, metal start of the 4/20 celebration.
Who: Weedeater, King Parrot
Doors: 7:00 PM, show start at 8:00 PM
Cost: $17.00 in advance, $20.00 the day of
