Mon 12/08 GWAR with special guests Corrosion of Conformity, American Sharks 8:00pm All Ages
It has been 29 years since the heavy metal holocaust known as GWAR burst upon our world in an explosion of blood, guts, and screaming steel. In this time they have revealed themselves not only as the un-disputed masters of “shock rock”, but also as an international cultural icon that has both touched the lives, and in some cases ruined the clothing, of many thousands of people. Often copied, never tamed, GWAR has set a standard of consistency in their work that is unmatched in rock and roll history. GWAR is currently supporting their 13th album, the incredible "Battle Maximus", and will continue in their non-stop tour schedule until the world is finally brought into groveling submission, and GWAR at last attains its glorious destiny, whatever that is.

Tue 12/16 Every Time I Die/The Ghost Inside with Special Guests Architects (UK), Hundredth, Backtrack 6:30pm All Ages
Hardcore heroes Every Time I Die released a new album From Parts Unknown on July 1 via Epitaph Records. "Thirst" is the first cut and the video is the first half of a short series. Visit Noisey to watch now. t could have been easy for Every Time I Die to go on autopilot. After sixteen years as a band they know what works and could go on doing the same thing – but that would be "boring and baseless," according to vocalist Keith Buckley. "Instead of making something that the kids can all sing along to, we wanted to make music that scares them," he adds.
For what do you stand? It may be the most important question one will ever ask. To put it in The Ghost Inside's parlance: "What do you stand for?" The five men of this California band passionately, feverishly and articulately inject that forceful query into the very foundation of their sound, their vision and their overall presentation. The Ghost Inside stands for authenticity, dedication, perseverance and the most literal adherence to the core values behind their craft.

Tue 01/06 Mae - The Everglow 10th Anniversary Tour 8:00pm All Ages
"Ten years ago we released "The Everglow" into the world as both an album and a story about the grand journey that all of us navigate. It told the story of our own journey from a small city on the Virginia coast out into the broader world. From Toledo to Tokyo. More importantly, it has become the soundtrack to many of your stories too. We have been honored to see the way you have woven this music into your own lives. From births to deaths, from first loves to first dances, from baby names to tattoos, you have made this your record. And we want to hear your story."
"We will be opening up the back-stage curtain and inviting a small group each night to an exclusive pre-show acoustic concert and conversation with the whole band. We will be playing songs from all of our albums and perhaps taking a request or two. In addition, we are offering some other special packages that include exclusive merchandise and some rare downloads that have never seen the light of day. . . until now. We are thrilled to offer these intimate musical experiences for the first time and we can't wait to see you backstage!"
