Wednesday To-Do: Lamb of God / GWAR

GWAR in space.

LAMB OF GOD / GWAR
8 p.m., the Village. $32 adv., $35 d.o.s.

Virginia-bred bands Lamb of God and GWAR don't look anything alike. The former favors the black clothes, goatees and long hair that are just about de rigueur in contemporary metal, while the latter takes the stage like D&D characters come to life, in horrible and horned demon masks, with spiked armor and monster feet and elaborately disgusting cod pieces. But they kick out metal with equal ferocity. Lamb of God is touring behind “Wrath,” the band's latest brutally aggressive album. GWAR, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, comes behind its latest, “Lust in Space.” (The band's origin story, in case you don't remember, positions them as interplanetary warriors descended from aliens stranded in Antarctica, who came to Earth to sexually enslave and slaughter us all.) There will be fake blood. Job for a Cowboy opens.
