This December, ride out 2022 with The Deuce and your one-way-ticket to midnight – HEAVY METAL!! A heady flight of fantasy and phantasia into the future, the past – and beyond! Buxomy bombshells and putrefying bomber pilots… beauties and beasts! All set to the hot-boppin’ beats of a gamut of disparate rock-and-rollers: Devo! Blue Oyster Cult! Cheap Trick! Black Sabbath! DON FELDER!??!

A doozy of pulpy pleasures – torn from the pages of the cult comic magazine to mesmerize your eyes and ears! And just as those haze-addled hopped-up heads in Times Square’s Harris Theatre were – YOU’LL be satisfied – fied – fied… on HEAVY METAL!!!
