Appetite For Awesome!

As long as there’s a decent backline and some semblance of organization, cover nights can be much more enjoyably adventurous than they sound on the surface, particularly if there’s a wild card factor in the mix. In the case of tonight’s “Appetite For Awesome!” show, there’s plenty of tantalizing unknowns. A wide range of iconic, harder-edged artists (Gorilla Biscuits, Jawbreaker, Guns ‘n’ Roses and Motorhead) are to be covered by a slew of this city’s most commanding metal-minded performers, including Heiress, Black Breath and Grenades. Best of all, it’s free, though proceeds earned from auction items will go to Rosie McPherson, the mother of 3 Inches of Blood bassist Brian Redman, who was killed suddenly in 2009. With On, Poverty Bay Saints, Betrayed, Blood Elk, The Great White North, Gravemaker, Between the Buried and Me. HANNAH LEVIN
