Abandon all hope and prepare yourself for a night so cloaked in gut-wrenching metal glory,  that you’ll have to crawl your way out. Step out of the confines of the Charlottesville music scene, and indulge in some raw, yet alluring, heavy progressive music.

It’s rare that such notable black metal performances congregate together, yet fitting that these three Virginia bands—Miami Nights, Earthling, and Salvaticus will provide the soundtrack to Friday the 13th.

Do your best to keep up with the incendiary licks of Earthling– a band whose masterful guitar and bellowing lyrics have already made them a must-see on the Virginia metal music scene.

And their counterparts for the evening, Miami Nights and Salvaticus, will undoubtedly keep your head (and hair) in  motion. The speedy riffs, wailing bass, and the over-arching death rattles of their vocalists will surely please metal purists. Dive into unique night of music and don’t be afraid to get your metal out.

Friday 9/13 $5-7, 9pm. Main St. Annex, 219 W. Water St., www.
