STATIC X
7 p.m., Village, $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.

Self-described as “evil disco,” industrial metal heavyweights Static X haven't lost momentum since their 1998 debut “Wisconsin Death Trip,” which reached platinum status in 2001. With six studio albums, one compilation, one EP, 12 singles, 12 videos and a guitar anthology book, the band is touring behind two-month-old album “Cult of Static.” In a cool nod to its fanbase, founding member, lead vocalist, guitarist, keyboardist and programmer Wayne Static has said, “The ‘cult' part of the title is not to be taken in any religious manner. I am referring to and giving respect to the loyalty of all you good people that have supported us through the years.” With hardcore acts Bury Your Dead, Seventh Void (with two Type O-negative members) and thrashers Dirge sharing the bill, you've gotta believe the loyalists will be out in force.
