Eight Gigs: Grim Reaper
Sun., April 10, 7:30 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $12-$15
Want to hear a bunch of old-school British heavy-metal dudes try their damnedest to shriek a strained “YEAH-EAEAEAEAEAEAEH” through their thinning, long hair? Hell yeah, you do. Grim Reaper’s been around forever with a bunch of ups and downs, and while it may not have been the best at just about anything, that hasn’t stopped a rather large block of metalheads from drunkenly screaming “see you in hell, my friend” at each other for decades. Do you have that song stuck in your head now? The lifers among you do. You can’t not go now. 1517 21st Street, http://grimreaperofficial.co.uk.
