Saturday To-Do: Goatwhore

8 p.m., Downtown Music. $10.

If you're still living under your parents' roof, and you're looking to tweak 'em, you could do worse than a Goatwhore T-shirt. Or, you know, by simply saying “Goatwhore” over and over and over. It's like a made-up swear word, which I feel fairly confident is what the New Orleans underground metal heroes were going for. Their influences, the quartet says, include the sort of Scandinavian black metal bands you'd expect — Celtic Frost, Bathory, Darkthrone — and, lest those who don't know anything about Scandinavian black metal don't get the drift, the “sounds of utter madness that take us to a new level of understanding through disturbing tones and an overwhelming purge of depravity.” If that sounds like your ticket, you won't want to miss this gig. As underground metal shows in Little Rock go, they don't get much bigger. Black Blood Division, Izamal and A Darkened Era open the all ages show.
