The official afterparty of Steel City Nostalgia Fair 2020 features a slasher flick-inspired metal show that will take place at the Canadian Nightclub on Sunday, April 26.

The licensed all-ages event will start at 8 p.m. and features Ari Lehman and his band First Jason, Sault Ste. Marie horror punks Frightlight and more.

Due to the show being on a Sunday it will have an end time of 11:30 p.m. Advance general admission tickets are just $15 and are available at Vintage Games n' Junque on Queen Street and from Frightlight members. VIP tickets (entry and an autographed Jason mask) are also available for $40.

First Jason is a punk-metal project fronted by Ari Lehman, the singer/actor who has the unique honour of having played the role of the first Jason Voorhees in the Paramount Classic Horror Film Friday the 13th (1980).

A native New Yorker, seasoned artist and professional musician, Lehman rips through the tight melodies and vicious hooks with his arsenal, a shredding keytar and powerful voice. First Jason performs in punk/metal clubs, metal fests, film festivals, and horror conventions throughout Europe and North America.

"Steel City Events is so excited to have the opportunity in bringing Ari Lehman and First Jason to Sault Ste. Marie. With continued support from the community, we can continue to make our events bigger and better,” says Michael Turcotte, owner, Vintage Games n' Junque.
