Blackened: Metallica Tribute
**Blackened – “Enter Sandman”**
Metallica released its speed-metal debut, _Kill 'Em All_, on July 25, 1983. 30 years later almost to the day, Chicago-based Metallica tribute act Blackened will recreate the jackhammer jolt and horse-like stamina of the Bay Area legends. Audience members can expect _Kill 'Em All_ fan favorites such as "Seek and Destroy," as well as chart-topping classics such as “Enter Sandman.” Singer John Dent nails James Hetfield’s signature growl down to every “oohwa,” “yeai-yeah,” and “diiieya,” as lead guitarist James Snedeker hammers like Kirk Hammett, bassist Mike Streicher erases memories of Cliff Burton, and drummer Vince Ochwat crushes the drums and auctions Basquiats like Lars Ulrich.
With two stories, four bars, a massive soundboard, and 12,600 square feet of room for music to roam, the entertainment complex of Mojoes polishes sonic heirlooms and gives fans breathing room for full-lunged sing-alongs. Polished hardwood floors accentuate a cozy, couch-laden lounge area—a decided class that extends to the concert area in the form of a giant chandelier hanging overhead.
