Too Much Distortion, January, Various

by

Local promoter Justin Cantrell has scheduled a slew of shows in January sure to slay fans of punk, metal and hardcore.

On Thursday, Jan. 7, Skate Night at Gusto will roar like a hundred wheels on a well-worn half-pipe with Texas bands Warcola and Scandals and locals NFFU (9 p.m., FREE).

On Sunday, Jan. 17, Red Room Tavern hosts Indianapolis' Bolth, Seattle's Danny The Champion of the World and locals A New Agenda (9 p.m., $5).

On Wednesday, Jan. 27, Skate Night at Gusto takes a turn with Nevada's Farley Overdose and locals Bone Dance, Ohadi and Jument (9 p.m., FREE).

Cantrell has two big shows planned for Thursday, Jan. 28: Missionary Position from Washington headlines at Red Room with Microbabies and Le Fleur opening (9 p.m., $5) and the Metal As Art Tour lands at Gusto with California darlings Revocation--who debuted on Relapse Records in September with Existence Is Futile--Boston's Hypno5e and New Jersey's Binary Code. We'll have to figure out how to be two places at once.

Gusto Bar, 509 W. Main St., 208-343-5159; Red Room Tavern, 601 W. Main St., 208-343-7034.
