Update: April 19th, 2023: We received word late last night (April 18th) that, due to a medical reason, Lockjaw will be unable to perform this Saturday for the 420 Lockdown with Negative 263.

Read the message from the band below

We want to wish the guys from Lockjaw the very best and offer positive vibes for quick healing for their drummer, Scott.

Stepping in for Lockjaw will be DFW rockers LUD. We want to thank them for stepping in at the last minute. Again, we wish the dudes from Lockjaw the very best.

Original Story: Abilene, get ready to throw the horns up at Heff's Burger Bar in the Mall of Abilene for the 420 Lockdown featuring Lockjaw and Abilene's own Negative 263. This is the metal show you have been looking for.

It's been a long time since the boys in Negative 263 rocked a stage in Abilene. In fact, it's been five years! The band, which started in Abilene around 2004, are local legends who still are "fueled by Jagermeister and hell" and ready to rock The Key City once again. It's about time!

Aside from Negative 263, the band Lockjaw who hail from Dallas Texas will be headlining the show, which will be at Heff's Burger Bar in the Mall of Abilene in April. Also DFW rockers MileZero will open this metal show.


When and where is the 420 Lockdown

The assault on Abilene takes place at Heff's in the Mall of Abilene on Saturday, April 22nd. The rock kicks off around 8 pm.

How much are the tickets to the show?

This low-dough show is only $10 for pre-sale tickets and they'll be $15 at the door for this 18 and up show. So save five bucks for beer and get those pre-sale tickets at Stubwire. 

So celebrate 420 with the ultimate local metal show, chow down on some killer grub from Heff's, and toss some cold beverages back at the 420 Lockdown, Saturday, April 22nd.

We hope to see your rockin' faces out at Heff's. Don't forget to take plenty of pictures and use the hashtag #420lockdown.
