Good news headbangers! If you feel like taking a break from windmilling to Cowboys From Hell to give your noggin a different type of workout, a kickass trivia night exclusively for metalheads is returning to Melbourne.
After a year off from punching out the world’s most brutal brainteasers, Heavy Metal Trivia is returning to “The B.East” (that’s 80 Lygon Street, Brunswick East for those of you playing at home) on Thursday, 5th of October.
“It’s been a year since the last Heavy Metal Trivia, and, just like Backstreet, we’re back! Only with more metal and fewer pretty boy haircuts,” organisers posted on Facebook, revealing that the big three-round comeback tournament would be MC’d by “hilarious heavy metal duo” Doug Steel of Alarum and Yeti of Vicious Circle, with metal-flamenco band Malcura performing live.
There’ll also be metal-themed burgers, plus plenty of CDs, vinyl, hot sauce and a crapload of other merch up for grabs for the night’s conquering metal poindexters.
Entry is free (yew!) but bookings are essential so give ’em a bell on (03) 9036 1456 to book a table if you’re game (and commence brainstorming your brutal AF team names, stat).
