End of an Ear New Arrivals and Events

End of an Ear will be hosting a Q & A with Iraqi heavy metallers, Acrassicauda tomorrow at 6pm. If you’ve ever seen the documentary, Heavy Metal Baghdad, you know that these dudes have been to hell and back all for the love of metal. You can also check them out later on that night at Red 7. I’m sure it will be a great show.
