Satanicide - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
Satanicide is an over-the-top, wigged out, '80s-style hair metal extravaganza which rose to "the top of the New York City rock trash heap" (TimeOut NY) in the early noughties. Founded by college friends Devlin Mayhem (vocals) and Aleister Cradley (guitar) in the late '90s, the band was pegged by Alternative Press as one of the "100 bands to watch in 2001." They released their first and only album, "Heather," in 2003. In that same year, their DIY short film "JerZ Knights" was an Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival. Satanicide's genre-defiling style laid the path for other bands to follow, including The Darkness, Tenacious D, and Steel Panther. Their legendary live shows were typified by awesomely authentic and hysterical original metal songs; absurd, ball-busting banter; and numerous Page 6-acknowledged cameos by Moby.

After the wild ride of the early noughties, Satanicide finally called it quits. Devlin went on to become one of Rock's top photographers, under the alias Dale May. And Aleister, under the alias Phil Costello, went on to form Tragedy: All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees, and Diamondsnake (with Moby).

Fast forward to 2016. Satanicide is back with live shows and a new record in the works. Joining Devlin and Aleister are their bandmates Sloth Vader (drums) and the Baron Klaus von Goaten IV (bass).

The band's old motto, "Never has so much cock graced a single stage," remains true to this day. That is largely because their cocks are older, wiser, and possibly even longer. Look out for Satanicide at a Lower East Side hipster club near you!

VIPER Rocks the Top Gun Soundtrack, Live!
Top Gun had the greatest soundtrack. Ever. And VIPER's sole mission is to blow the sunshine off your a** with their cover to cover performance of that entire soundtrack. LIVE!

Find out who will take home the coveted Top Gun trophy as Maverick and Goose take to the skies in Fightertown USA, flying against the best of the best. With Iceman shredding on guitar and Charlie on bass, Slider brings the thunder while Giorgio rocks that iconic 80s synth. Since it's formation, the band has been critic's picks in The Washington Post, DCist, The Village Voice, and Time Out, having rocked everything form dive bars and galleries to massive concert venues and airshows along the east coast!

Top Gun is the epic tale of high altitude action, courage and redemption, and homoerotic beach volleyball that defined our generation. Experience it like you never have before as VIPER rocks the entire soundtrack in a live concert, immersive, action experience. All live instrumentation and vocals. All the songs you totally forgot were on there. Ice cold. No mistakes.
