On paper, at least to rock reviewers, the 2013 M3 Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion looked less like a musical event than it did a quarantine: so many 1980s metal bands, each more critically abused than the last! So many black-T-shirt-clad armies of fans of said panned bands! All in one place!
So much fun!

Headbanging all night would give anyone a hangover. Just ask the hard-partying guys behind Grill 'Em All Burgers, the long running heavy metal-themed burger truck that set up a brick and mortar base earlier this year in Alhambra. Now, for those not intimately familiar with the landscape of Los Angeles, Alhambra is part of the rolling procession of suburbia that moves west from downtown and doesn't stop until it burns up somewhere near the Salton Sea. "Valhalla", as Grill 'Em All's burger base is known, sits next to a Menchie's frozen yogurt and within thrashing distance of an Applebee's. Still, these dudes know how to rock.
