Hailing from Cleveland, OH, the rock outfit Chimaira mixes hardcore, metal, and electronics to create a distinctive sound that has won the band legions of fans. Starting out opening for bands like Soulfly, Spineshank, and Snapcase, the band eventually released its debut full-length album, Pass Out Existence, on the Roadrunner imprint in 2001. Subsequent albums on the label included The Impossibility of Reason (2003) and a 2005 eponymous release. Although internal problems, label changes, and membership shifts created tumult for the band in the ensuing years, the group still managed to release Resurrection in 2007 and The Infection in 2009. Now, after traveling a road fraught with adversity, Chimaira advances its trademarked brand of heavy metal with its latest monster, The Age of Hell (2011). With this album, the eclipse of what you thought you knew about contemporary metal has begun. There is a new definition announced by distorted yet familiar faces. With this album, Chimaira will take you through The Age of Hell. Let's hope you are prepared.

Venue Description: A throwback to the fabled days of New York nightclubs, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill features top-caliber music stars and an American Continental menu with a Southern flair. The Showcase Room has video screens and state-of-the-art sound, table seating, a bar where you can snack and listen, and a dance floor. The Beatles Brunch is offered every Saturday at noon (doors at 11am), and doors open for the Gospel Brunch every Sunday at 12:30pm with music at 1:30pm.
