G Street Wunderbar, 8 p.m., no cover
It describes itself as the “loudest band in Davis”—a bold statement considering the number of thrash groups in the region. Sure, its take on the genre is obviously aggressive and does tip the hat quite generously to old-school '80s metal played with a lot of technique, precision and punch. But is Glug that loud? Well, with a singer whose voice is mean and gut-wrenchingly harsh, the answer would have to be yes. It isn't afraid to offend, either. In fact, it hopes to. But underneath the obscenities, there are actually some honest, personal songs—they're just delivered to you in your face. 228 G Street in Davis, www.myspace.com/glugrocks.
