Do you pine for the days when Poison was #1 in the charts and you were totally stoked to save up enough cash to pick up Master Of Puppets? Do you miss metal, not brass but loud, hairsprayed, mullet-pounding heavy metal? The Chicago Music Factory keeps track of heavy metal events in and around Chicago, keeping track of bands metal-heads want to hear like Maggot Twat, Whorrid, and the timeless classic, RATT. Tight trousers sold separately.
