Full metal racket

If you like your music painfully loud and prefer concerts that resemble freak shows, then you’re in luck this weekend. Rock music’s only alien metal band GWAR will perform its profane stage show complete with bizarre costumes and an arsenal of icky, sticky fluids. All That Remains (pictured) and Alabama Thunderpussy will prep up the crowd starting at 8 p.m. Feb. 18 at New Oasis, 2100 Victorian Ave., Sparks. Tickets are $18-$20. Call 359-4020.—Kelley Lang
