Legends of Cleveland Metal

Legends of Cleveland Metal, with Nightcrawler, Wretch, Aftershok, and Mandrake. 8:30 p.m. Saturday, November 26, $8. Beachland Tavern, 15711 Waterloo Rd., 216-383-1124.

A night of metal the way it used to be, the Legends of Cleveland Metal show will feature members of Breaker, Shok Paris, and Black Death. Classic Cle-metal bands from the Auburn Records roster used to play the Pop Shop, located beneath the Cleveland Agora, on Saturday nights. The Pop Shop’s gone, but the guy who ran the shows says that the Beachland’s little room is close enough. “The Beachland Tavern has the same kind of vibe to it,” says Auburn CEO Bill Peters (who, technically, is the entire label). “It’s small, it’s dark. It’ll be a good throwback show.” So if you had the Heavy Artillery comp, but you haven’t been to a show in years, break out the leather: You can come back, dude; heavy metal never forgets.
