It's death metal Tuesday at the Larimer Lounge. Okay, I made that crap up; there's no official, on-going weekly theme at the Lounge. Nonetheless, that's precisely what's on tap -- too much metal for one hand. Stop by tonight and have your ass handed to by Cryogen, Columbian Necktie, Followed By Silence and Blackout 7.
Of course, if being bludgeoned on a Tuesday winter's eve isn't quite what you had in mind, Dressy Bessy's John Hill brings his Hi-Fi Listening Party to the hi-dive. Meanwhile, across the street, National Blues Arsenal fires up Low Down Dirty Tuesday at 3 Kings Tavern. Or for something a little more interactive, stop by Bender's Tavern to get your karaoke on with the King of Karaoke,Machine Gun Blues bassist Jermaine Smith, or indulge your inner freak and geek with Magic Cyclops's new '80s centric night, MP3J. -- Dave Herrera
