Headbangers prepare for a ball as three of Chicago's loudest heavy-metal tribute bands set off stagequakes at Durty Nellie's during the Monsters of Mock show. Meticulously aping the snarls and jackhammer riffs of Bay Area legends Metallica, Blackened blitzkriegs through a high-stamina set of hits, from the thrashy "Master of Puppets" to the sludgier "Enter Sandman." Dirty Deeds specializes in the early Bon Scott era of AC/DC, doling out hip-shakers such as "Highway to Hell" and "Big Balls" with ragged, stratospheric vocals achieved by drinking whiskey-and-razorblade milkshakes. Rounding up the hell-raising triumvirate, Judas Beast mixes a potent concoction of 80% Iron Maiden and 20% Judas Priest, appeasing metal gods with operatic vocals, a rhythm section of smoldering anvils, and accurate props such as Iron Maiden's famed skeletal mascot, Eddie.
Up to 1,200 fans can dance and sway to the legendary sounds at Durty Nellie's. Planted across the street from the Palatine Metra station, the venue is easily accessible by public transit or private piggyback, the better to explore a 30-tap, 120-bottle beer list full of potions from Three Floyds and Goose Island as well as from France and Germany.
