Loud around town.

There's a whole lotta loud making its way to Austin this weekend.

Tonight, sludge-metal mainstays the Melvins and other half Big Business total Emo's outside; Japanese thrash legends AGE tear it up inside with Peligro Social, World Burns to Death, Chronic Seizure, and Tolar. Further down Red River, local riffmen Those Peabodys channel the Seventies, as do reformed punks the Avengers at Red 7, but more legitimately because, well, they were there.

Then there's feedback duo Magik Markers (Mohawk, Thursday); the Snake Eyes Vinyl benefit (Room 710, Thursday); Japanese Orange amp enthusiasts Boris (Mohawk, Friday); the Band AIDS benefit for victims in Kenya with Altered Intentions, We Killed Shelley, and Chapter of Resistance (Emo's Lounge, Saturday); and Richmond, Virginia punks Cloak/Dagger, along with Camp X-Ray, Warwulf, Hour of the Wolf, and Coptic Times (Beerland, Sunday).

Plug up and resist using your "inside voice."
