Parasytic Syndrome, Raw Nerves, Stripmines, Kakistocracy

When: Sat., July 17 2010

This four-set onslaught is, if nothing else, a fitting birthday celebration for Hardcore Hank Williams, the champion and chief promoter of Raleigh punk and metal. Headliners from Richmond, Parasytic speed through burly sludge, like Kylesa pacing Motörhead or like D.R.I. doing what D.R.I. does best. It's hardcore in its direct approach and avalanche momentum, metal in its enunciated guitar phrases, unhurried riffs and agile solos. Locals Stripmines pummel their way through amplifiers, choke-holding the audience with malleable pacing and foaming-at-the-mouth ferocity. Also, Walls and No Tomorrow. For more partying with Hank, visit the first night of his birthday bash on Friday at Slim's, where Parasytic joins Attake, Raw Nerves and Devour. —Bryan Reed
