Amazing art on the walls, magazines galore and the 1981 animation extravaganza “Heavy Metal” playing on the monitor. Heaven!

Check. This. Out.

Here’s a look at Heavy Metal’s VIP art gallery and lounge at Lollapalooza in Chicago. The venue is the Code of Conduct tattoo shop (14 East 11th St.), just blocks away from the music festival in Grant Park. It’s a place where performers, artists, athletes, music industry professionals and select locals can chill out, take in some art, knock back a couple cold ones from Three Floyds Brewing, and even get inked by one of Code of Conduct’s tattoo artists.

The Three Floyds brews offered are Zombie Dust Pale Ale, Jinx Proof Lager, and Alpha King Pale Ale — this last one is kinda extra important. In December, Heavy Metal will be bringing you Rise of the Alpha King, a new title by Brian Azzarello and Simon Bisley.

The art gallery will remain on display for three weeks after Lollapalooza, so you should stop by if you weren’t on the list for the festival weekend. Artists with work on display include Ron English, Eine, Steve Seeley (who draws Hoax Hunters for Heavy Metal), Lefty, Dont Fret, and Curtis Readel.
