Eight Gigs: Hummingbird of Death
Thu., Oct. 29, 8 p.m., Cafe Colonial, $7
Quick breakdown: First there was punk, which was angry and fast, but not angry and fast enough, so that led to the angrier and faster hardcore, and then that wasn't angry or fast enough, so that sped into thrashcore (or fastcore). Which is what you're going to get multiple overdoses of, should you show up to the Hummingbird of Death show. Some serious fastcore from Boise, Idaho; the band is coming to wreck faces with local outfits RAD, Cross Class and xTom Hanx. Maybe bring a helmet. 3520 Stockton Boulevard, www.hummingbirdofdeath.com.
