This Sunday, April 7th, 2013, I’ll be co-hosting the third metal night at Port City Brewery in Alexandria from 5 to 9pm! I’ve got over 15 tickets to give away at Metal Night III to see upcoming shows by Anthrax, Death, Suffocation, Ghost and Mayhem Fest! And while there won’t be any bands playing live there will be metal played throughout the brewery all during the event. In fact, you can send in your own song requests ahead of time to get them added to the set list by emailing Port City brewer and metal head Will at Will@PortCityBrewing.com Requests can be any sub-genre of metal, even the extreme ones are ok. If you’ve got a classic metal favorite, some weird underground metal band’s song you never thought you’d hear in public or just want to promote your own local metal band, then send in your request to hear it at Metal Night!
And did I mention the beer? Port City makes some damn fine beer and in their tasting room. They sell it by the glass (or growler if you want to take it home) for cheaper than most bars sell their crappy mass produced beer for (more on that here in my previous post about beer and metal). You can even get a “flight” of smaller glasses to sample several of the beers to help you figure out what you like. Since the event ends at 9pm you can still get home before it gets too late, we gotta work Mondays too. There isn’t a kitchen at Port City Brewery but there will be a food truck on site. Also, the local power metal band A Sound Of Thunder will be there to raise money for the local fests Flight Of The Valkyries and Metal Quest so keep an eye out for them as well.
Admission is free to Metal Night and I encourage you to share this post or the Facebook event page (here) with your metal head friends. You don’t have to be 21 to attend but you must be 21 to drink. Designated drivers of all legal driving ages are welcome! If you’ve never been to Port City Brewing Company before, the address is 3950 Wheeler Ave, Alexandria, VA 22304 (map).
It will be a great night of sampling some excellent craft beer while listening to some killer metal tunes with friends new and old. Now think up which songs you want to hear at Metal Night III and get ready to win some prizes!
