Anything but tired: Very loud Bay Area doom metal trio Sleep attained underground legend status with a monolithic late-’90s riff monster called Dopesmoker. The long-awaited 2018 follow-up, The Sciences, brought new commercial success and a bit more sonic variation without sacrificing the band’s trademark bongwater-soaked power. Rumor has it that the oft-shirtless guitarist Matt Pike used to spend some personal time in Charlottesville. If you’ve only met him over Christmas dinner, come see why he’s been called the most metal man on earth.

Sunday 6/9. $25-28, 8pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
