Metal Mondays

Metal Monday is Ground Kontrol’s long-running metal night, and it is not to be trifled with. A host of Portland’s best heavy metal DJs haunt the halls of the arcade, merciless with their aural assault. Each week from 7pm to midnight, thrash your senses with metal movies on the big screen, drink discounts for those in the proper attire, and of course – more metal than one should probably ever be exposed to. Affirmative: every Monday it’s heavy metal, video games, and drinks. Hail! 21+ only
