Sounds of the Underground After-party

9 p.m. Saturday, July 21., $10. 21 and over. Peabody's/Rockstar Cleveland, 2083 E. 21st St., 216-776-9999.


Rockstar Cleveland is normally a safe bet to catch a visiting rocker unwinding after a big show. Tonight, however, it's a lock: Peabody's and Rockstar (Peabody's upstairs sub-club) will be jammed with metal stars when it hosts the official Sounds of the Underground After-Party. Hometown headliners Mushroomhead and Chimaira will be on hand for meet-and-greet sessions. And most of the other groups on the bill -- such as Shadows Fall, Every Time I Die, and Darkest Hour -- play Peabody's when they come through town, so they definitely know where to go for a good time. And if hanging with a bunch of sweaty rock dudes getting hammered isn't your idea of fun, the Rockstar portion of the festivities will be a military-ball fetish party, hosted by the mavens of Elise's Playground. DJ Cooper will spin synth-pop, industrial, retro, and EBM, and Dyksick will perform. Proceeds from the Playground party benefit Cystic Fibrosis funds, so it'd be selfish to not go.
