Eight Gigs: Khemmis
Wed., Aug. 10, 8 p.m., Starlite Lounge, $8-$10
Black Sabbath rules, but if you’re an unrepentant fool like me, sometimes you listen and think, “Where the hell are the Thin Lizzy-style twin leads that I so desperately crave?” Should you ever have been dumb enough to actually think that, you should know that Khemmis is the actualization of that dream. Stoner-friendly grooves, riffs that soar so high they leave your blood freezing in the astral planes and outright sickeningly delicious tones meld all of your heavy-metal fantasies into one clean, fresh and up-and-coming outfit that demands your attention. 1517 21st Street, http://khemmisdoom.com.
