“It’ll be many different types of metal, all awesome metal– I won’t play any shitty metal. I don’t wanna knock any bands, but there won’t be any Five Finger Death Punch.” If you’ve grown weary of constant Tindering (which, let’s be real, can result in too many anonymous bones and not enough long walks on the beach), Speed Metal Dating will offer all of Tinder’s brevity (e’ll just let people have a few minutes to get to know each other,” Hill explained) while also giving you the radical opportunity to speak with someone face-to-face before signing yourself up for the mess of agreeing to go on an actual date with them.

The printed photos on the wall, surrounded by cute illustrations by Andrew Rae, feature Honolulu, Paris, Los Angeles, Pisa, London, Mexico City, Amsterdam, Moscow, and Zurich.

And while the selfie-takers might not have the cash to actually fly there, the work does celebrate the fact that Delta flies to the most destinations of any airline from NYC.

Prepare yourself for a stampede of lustrous locks, tattoos, and cut-off band t-shirts– it’s gonna be a long night of unadulterated babe.

Oh, and, “Darkthrone is gonna play at the end,” Dave said. the city’s metal-ist metal bar, where Hill (also a metal fan) will preside over the rotations.

“It might just be crazy enough to work,” mused Dave Hill, the comedian and author who’s now embarking on his second venture in “alt” romantic encounters.

It’s Speed Metal Dating, happening this weekend at Saint Vitus!

Hill admitted that he’s never used Tinder, but thinks that even speed dating (which, in a way, was the gimmicky precursor to fast left-swiping when it was developed by a Beverly Hills-based Orthodox rabbi in the late ’90s) offers the chance for a realer experience.

“I think it’s an opportunity to actually meet people and meet them not in a superficial way, and it’s cool now, because people often don’t meet in-person,” Hill said.

After all, the event is 100 percent free for daters and non-daters alike.
