In April of 2011, a beast was born. The idea of a weekly heavy metal residency at Nectar’s in Burlington, VT became a physical reality. The plan was to expose both people and bands to music and audiences that had previously never been associated with Burlington’s most accessible live music venue. The plan worked, thus making what was dubbed METAL MONDAY from day 1 into the longest and strongest live band residency in recent Nectars’ history. Three to four different bands every week including a live DJ hosting the night helped extract metal fans, music appreciators and bands from all over town, the state, the region, the country and even from over seas. A collective effort towards establishing an evening of metal every Monday of the week became encouraged and welcomed. The comfort of Nectar’s soon became routine for friends and fans alike who share a common love for heavy music, good people, and partying! The whole thing is truly a group effort.
On April 29, 2013 we celebrated the 100th METAL MONDAY. Local metal favorites shared in the event by playing cover sets, adding a unique flare to the night. It was a party, a celebration, and testament to the success of METAL MONDAY.
Cheers to cracking the sky and opening minds!
