This is a must-attend, as far as we’re concerned. Yes, we must-attended a metal show! The event description really does a great job explaining the need for a diversified front of local heavyweights—”Metal cannot rely on brutality alone”—and we’d also like to add that the more mainstream exposure that the more recognized bands get, the higher the local metal tide rises. (We love the rat hole, but there’s only a capacity of like 20 there!) So make it a point to go see Rad Enhancer, the virtuosos of Cantharone, the new aggression of The Wolf Council, and the United Teachers of Music. And bless Craig from PBR for setting this up. 7:30 PM. Free. —Taylor Carik
