The Glenwood Springs Eagles Club has a perfect venue for live hip-hop and heavy-metal shows. Hold onto your hats, the lodge will provide its space for two shows this weekend, one scheduled for Friday, Oct. 29 and the next one on Saturday, Oct. 30. Doors open at 6 p.m. for both shows.

The Eagles have sponsored four previous hip-hop and heavy metal shows, all magnetizing fans from all over the Western Slope. This time, outside sponsors have been brought in to add more bands. In addition to The Eagles Club, sponsors are Orrison Distributing, Moe’s, The Courtyard and Residence Inn Marriott, Russo’s New York Pizza and Rob Blotske from Fleisher and Associates.

The shows are for all ages, but will be uncensored, so beware, for those who are sensitive, for possible obscenities. Tickets will be $5 each night, or you can purchase a two-night ticket for $8, available at the door only.

A two-night costume contest, and handouts and giveaways will add extra excitement to the shows.

Slated to perform Friday, Oct. 29, are hip-hop artists MC Entity, from Grand Junction; Prophecy the Iron Monk, from Grand Junction; Poppa Capp, from Phoenix, Arizona; Moniker, from Grand Junction; Time and AwareNess, of Denver; Strange Powers, of Denver; and Ancient Mith, of Denver.

On Saturday, Oct. 30, hard rock and heavy metal artists Welcome the Fury, from Aspen; Existence, from Grand Junction; Glass Delirium, from Denver; Lost Point, from Denver; Machinery Cell, from Rifle and Frozen Eternity, from Colorado Springs.

No appointment is necessary. The cost of the varnish procedure is $5.
