It List: Thursday
High On Fire/Saviours/RWAKE/A Life Once Lost (Rubber Gloves): I know a lot of people are excited to see High On Fire in a venue that probably holds five times fewer people than the place they played last time they were in town. There's no doubt that a band like HOF will be extra impressive at a place the size of Rubber Gloves, though I'll be the first to admit it's not always the most practical idea if you consider how much their crowd has grown over the years. Expect an energetic, fucked up performance...especially from the audience. It's also nice to see a show this big still happens at RGRS. I worry about them sometimes.
New Science Projects/Hundts Kup/Real Live Tigers (Strawberry Fields)
80's Night With DJ G (Hailey's)
Clinging To The Trees Of A Forest Fire/Restless Youth (Red Blood Club): You'll have to pick your "Fire" tonight. For my money, this super complicated grind band (CTTTOAFF) sounds much scarier than High On Fire. Their name is also one of the most ridiculous I've seen in some time. I understand the reasons behind Red Blood having to start and end shows so early, but man, it's inconvenient. I missed Akkolyte on Monday by assuming that they were still running normal start times. Oh, well.
