MACHINA
9:30 p.m., Juanita's. $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

Rumors of Machina's demise have been greatly exaggerated, despite a lack of presence on the road and a relatively silent 2008. The lineup includes Jacksonville-born, former Evanescence drummer Rocky Gray, who's been a staple on the Arkansas metal scene since the early 1990s and also played lead guitar for Living Sacrifice. Guitarist John LeCompt, also formerly of Evanescence, began collaborating in 2005 with Future Leaders of the World lead singer Phil Taylor and bassist Thad Ables, eventually becoming Machina. Last year, the alt-metal band released an EP and toured extensively. Currently in Nashville crafting its debut album with hit-making guru Toby Wright, Machina's performance with supporters Brookroyal and Altus Project should make for quite a heavy and memorable show. P.S., it's open to ages 18 and up.
