Stillwater Public Library will host head-banging heavy metal concert

STILLWATER, Okla. — Readers typically use their library voices at Stillwater Public Library, but at 7 p.m. Aug. 26, visitors can expect to hear a little more noise.

Local band Disposable Guitar Heroes will hold a free concert in the library courtyard to welcome students and other community members back to Stillwater.

The heavy-metal tribute band will feature classic head-banging tunes from Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC, Van Halen and others.

“When we heard there was a Metallica tribute band in Stillwater, we were all pretty excited,” said Librarian Scott Freeman. “Those of us who graduated in the ’80s spent the best years of our lives listening to this music, so it should appeal not only to students but a lot of us older folks too.”

The band features Adam Avey on drums, Danny Gilliland on bass, Matthew Hill on guitar and Doug Hill on vocals. Local pastor Jonathan Dorst adds in on guitar and vocals.

Students and other community members age 18 and over can bring photo identification to get a free library card. A short form will be required. With the Stillwater Public Library card, students can access databases, check out materials and use library computers and Internet.

The concert is free and open to the public. Attendees should bring blankets or lawn chairs. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved into the auditorium.

For more information, visit or contact the library help desk at 405-372-3633, Ext. 106 or Stillwater Public Library is located at 1107 S. Duck St.
