Mention hand drums to most metal heads and you’re likely to get virulent responses, or worse. But the members of local band Blooddrunk Troll prove that hippie drums can be hardcore. John Jones, the dark master of the hand drum, bangs out serious beats on his djembe, laying the foundation for Luke “Beer Troll” Smith’s guitar shredding and classic grindcore dueling vocals that brings Cattle Decapitation to mind—the band, not, you know, the other thing. Salvaticus, Vicious Tides, and Helgamite round out the evening of Virginia-based thrash.

Friday 2/28. $8, 9pm. Main Street Annex, 219 W. Water St.  817-2400.
