Mess Hall’s Metalfest exists to celebrate the great
speed, thrash and death metal of the 1980’s and to
give fans of real metal an alternative to the
Metallica concerts happening on the same dates at the
All-State Arena.
Mess Hall will converted into Rogers Park’s center for
the appreciation of Speed/Thrash/Death Metal of the
1980’s. For this two day event Mess Hall will be
transformed into a site of ungodly metal mayhem. You
will not be disappointed by the scale and heaviness of
the visuals we’ve concocted.
We’ll have a stereo on hand for the DJing of Metal.
Bring records or CDs you wanna play, or you can kick
back, open a beer, and bang your head to the many
killer albums we’ll have on hand. We’ll also have back
issues of Metal Mania and other mags and a VCR and DVD
player with which we will project metal videos of
yore. We’ve got live Venom, Slayer, Exodus, and
Metallica (CLIFF BURTON YEARS ONLY) and other shit. If
you have more metal videos, definitely bring them.
We’ll screen whatever you’ve got (as long as it’s
heavy, obviously).
Anyone attempting to bring False Metal into Mess Hall
may be asked to leave. Attendees may be asked to help
define what is or is not False Metal.
