If you’re a metal fan, check out tonight’s show on H Street, which features three local-ish bands of varying stature in Misery Index, Drugs of Faith and Salome, plus Phoenix grindcore band Landmine Marathon. Should be an interesting mix of slow & heavy (Salome) and fast & brutal (everyone else). This show is a prelude to a big world tour that sees Misery Index hitting Canada, Japan, and a bunch of European summer festivals, in support of last year’s Traitors on Relapse Records.

While this is Misery Index’s show, it will also be a kind of informal release party for the new Agoraphobic Nosebleed record Agorapocalypse, which is out today. Half of ANb will be playing at this show—vocalist/bassist Richard Johnson plays guitar in Drugs of Faith, and vocalist Kat Katz does the screaming for Salome.

At the Rock & Roll Hotel, doors at 8:00, show at 8:30, $10 cover.
