Local band heavy metal polka band, Kranken Welpen, will be hosting “Kranken Fest” this Saturday at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa at 7 p.m.

While the band is a frequent advocate of the Tiki Bar, this Saturday will hold a special delight for attendees. Anyone who can play the guitar is invited to compete in the “So You Think You Can Shred” contest taking place that night. Whoever enters will be challenging the lead guitarist of Kranken Welpen to a “riff-off”. If the challenger wins, they will be awarded an assortment of prizes.

The openers for Kranken Welpen will include The Mad Marionettes and Straight to the Moon.

Tickets are $10 and you must be over 21 to enter the bar.
