This week is going to be phenomenal for local metal heads, as is evidenced by this week’s Metal Meltdown. Not only are two amazing musical powerhouses, Dead Meadow and Royal Thunder, passing through on their way to Crucial Fest in Salt Lake City, our very own Trve Brewing are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a special show that features lots of great bands. So if you know what’s good for you, get out, enjoy the fresh Spring air, and come check out some of this awesome music.
Dead Meadow @ Larimer Lounge – Wednesday, June 17th and Thursday, June 18th
Everyone’s favorite heavy psych band Dead Meadow, hailing from Washington, D.C. are going to be doing their signature two-show stint at the Larimer Lounge this week on their way to play Crucial Fest, and we couldn’t be more excited. For those unfamiliar with the sounds of Dead Meadow, check them out if you love psych rock, but like it with a tinge of heaviness and a nod to doom, stoner rock and classic metal. Not only do these guys always totally bring the awesomeness on tour, they also always have great merch with them, so this is a show you will definitely not want to miss out on. These guys are so big they have to split their fans up into two nights, and if you are lucky enough to go on Thursday, there will be a food truck on site as well.

Doors: 8 PM/ show starts at 9PM
