When superpowers collide in an epic battle on the big screen, everyone knows that things look cooler with the right soundtrack. And though this neighborly guitar battle between friends will most likely remain peaceful, you can always imagine a sonic struggle raging in your eardrum. And though tonight Terry Eason and Bill Mike battle on the guitar, the two are birds of the same feather. They have known each other since the early '90s when they worked together in a warehouse. They have amicably replaced each other in various bands, including Redstart and the Chan Poling Band. Both have an affinity for analog guitar pedals. Together, they make one guitar-heavy lineup at the Uptown. Should you survive Guitarmageddon, you should come out with a finer appreciation of two great musicians. With Sam Keenan and Wild Things. 21+.
