Classic Metal Meltdown

10 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday, August 18. All ages, $35 includes camping, swimming, and game room. Nelson Ledges Quarry Park, 12001 State Rt. 282, Garrettsville, 440-548-2716.


As summer winds down, Club Scout ventures beyond the clubs, beyond downtown, beyond suburban nightlife, and into the great outdoors of Nelson Ledges Quarry Park. This bucolic setting will be the site of the Classic Metal Meltdown, a show featuring some of your favorite headbanging hits and some heavy new tunes you need to hear. Check out original local power metal from Law of Destruction (members of Beyond Fear), H.A.T.E. , and Cellbound. And if you want something you know, worry not: Tribute bands headline, including Battery (Metallica), Damagecase (Motorhead), Degameth (Megadeth), Resurrection (Judas Priest), Black Sunday (Sabbath/Ozzy), and Powerslave (Iron Maiden). The fire-breathing performers of Ohio Burn Unit will spit flame all night on the beach. The party's BYOB, and make sure you bring a bathing suit. It's a raging kegger, times 25.
