Downtown Music kicks off its showcase of bands headed to Austin, Texas’ South by Southwest with a visit from Minnesota/North Dakota death metal act Battlefields, whose music is methodical and punishing. Also on the bill are Boston art rock outfit Junius and Illinois psychedelic-tinged metal band Cloud Burial with local support from two Conway bands: down-tempo metal act Crankbait and Conway death metal band Izamal. The music starts at 8 p.m. with a $6 cover.
Charlotte, N.C., and Victory Records band A Hero A Fake visit Vino’s to showcase their progressive metal with elements of hardcore with an energetic live show filled with catchy, complex music. Joining the band will be their touring partners Farewell to Freeway, a hardcore metal act who is also signed to Victory Records. Also on the bill is the Houston quintet of Before There Was Rosalyn, a Christian band who testify with a right cross of brutal music and passionate lyrics. The music roars to life at 8 p.m. with a $10 cover.
