RWAKE
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

They're Arkansas's delegation to the international metal scene. They're held in the highest regard by some heavy names that make heavy music with bands like Avail and Shrinebuilder. They're one of the most celebrated underground metal acts around and, if you've yet to be indoctrinated to the ways of Rwake, it's high time to find out just why these locals are demigods across the world. The band brings its prog-sludge sound to White Water, where it'll welcome back original bassist Reid Raley (Iron Tongue, Deadbird) and, hopefully, raise some bread to keep their drummer, Jeff, out of the pokey due to a few outstanding traffic violations. So if you're in the market for a killer metal show in a small venue, not to mention assisting in the overpopulation problems of county jails, here's your chance. These Wolves Are Robots and Pallbearer open.

Quick note: If you missed out on it in March, you'd be remiss not to check out Lindsey's cover story on Rwake.
