Metalhead at Martini Ranch

Looking for something to do this week? "Night Owl" is a quick guide to special nights at bars and clubs around town. We'll give you a few hints re: cover, dress code, music and atmosphere. Sundays mark Metalhead at Martini Ranch. 

Metalhead rocks out Sunday evening like a hurricane. The glammed-out guys do their best hair metal impressions on Martini Ranch's main stage every week, just like they've been doing for nearly five years now. 

The mock-rockers aren't the only thing that the evening has going for it though. The event features a fun environment, a great crowd and a few decent drink specials.

Check out a full slideshow here and a rundown after the jump...

What we loved: This was not a typical Sunday night. Metalhead kept the place packed and rocking until well into the evening. The scantily clad go-go dancers poured a little sugar onto the evening and helped bring the glam-metal era to life. The $3 beer prices weren't too bad either. 

What we didn't love: The guys in Metalhead have completely recreated a 1980's Los Angeles metal club environment in every way except for one, the incessant mentioning of their facebook page. The repeated request for "likes" was worthy of just the opposite. 

Are we going back? Every rose has its thorn and since we loved a whole lot more than we didn't love about Metalhead, we'll be back.
