Thurs, Sept 17, Alaric
Javalounge, 5:30 p.m., $4
If goth kids listened to good music, they’d probably get hyped off of Alaric. Throwing death rock, industrial and punk into their cauldron of sound, these dudes are into some scary shit. Imagine if Fugazi, the U.K. Subs and Ministry were scheduled to play the same bill, but then died, their bodies thrown into one big pile to decompose. Then imagine a voodoo curse bringing this pile of bodies back to life in the form of one band that walked around feeding on the flesh of the living. It’s like what happened with AFI, before they turned into 15-year-old girls. 2416 16th Street, www.myspace.com/alaricalarc.
