Featuring a stellar lineup of guests and hosts ranging from musicians, comedians, and DJs, this new series will give fans the opportunity to sit down with some of the world’s most iconic artists for an intimate experience unlike any other. As if that wasn’t enough, Top Note Sessions will take place in Metro’s secret and vastly unknown fourth floor theater. 
 
Top Note Sessions kickedoff on Saturday, February 13, 2016 with Metro’s very own JOE SHANAHAN and legendary punk rock icon HENRY ROLLINS with host DON HALL (WBEZ/Chicago Moth Storyslams). This event is 18+, and is RSVP only (limited spots available)
This memorable event was a great start to the new series and was made even more special by the celebration of Henry's birthday. As a present, he was given a pair of shorts that were misplaced during a show back in 1992, with an additional picture of Henry screaming to the crowd, wearing the shorts.
Stay tuned for more announcements via our email blasts, as there will be tickets available for each show in very limited quantities!

Nordic Thunder Interview

Chatting with air guitar champ Justin 'Nordic Thunder' Howard

RedEye nightlife reporter chats with air guitar champ Justin "Nordic Thunder" Howard about his Dark Matter Coffee/CH Distillery collaboration, world peace and air guitaring around the globe.

Metalocalypse NOW!

It's been several years since this absurdly fantastic cartoon graced boob tubes across the world. This tongue-in-cheek ode to all things metal gripped fans of all ages, colors and creeds to become a cult classic. Much in the same vein as Headbangers Ball, this show was ripped from the airwaves too soon. 

Fast forward to present day, to the beginning of Metalocalypse NOW! is a movement to convince the fine folks at HULU to put the final season of the show out so that the story can be complete. Dark Matter Coffee are huge fans, and wanted to show our support in anyway possible. We trekked half-way across the country to fuel two crazy parties over Halloween weekend.

The first was at Grill'em All Burgers, a metal themed burger & beer bar in Alhambra, California. Crazed fans packed their faces with glorious meat delicacies like Jump in The Fryer, Bohemeth and my favorite, Cowboy From Hell. Brendon Small, the creator of Metalocalypse, was on hand to eat, drink and encourage debauchery.

Day two was an offering of support at HULU HQ on Friday, October 30th to help convince the powers-that-be to do what is right and make the final season a reality! Again, the support was overwhelming and after four hours, everyone was asked to keep quite. (Hulu employees were having trouble talking on the phone due to all the noise!) The event was a great success and provided some impressive costumes!

The battle isn't over yet though!! We need everyone to SIGN THE PETITION! Help us keep Metalacolyspe alive! To find out how you can support, read up here
