BRIAN 'HEAD' WELCH
7:30 p.m., Revolution. $18

In a nutshell: Guy co-founds Korn, one of the heaviest, most successful bands of metal provocateurs in the '90s. Guy earns millions of dollars and fans; falls into a nasty addiction to booze, meth, Xanax and general pessimism; stays spun all day for years, becomes manic depressive, removed from wife and daughter. One day, after having a line of meth, he has a religious revelation; quits Korn; Korn gets pissed off, but posts a nice, succinct press release on its website, saying Head has "chosen the Lord Jesus Christ as his savior and will be dedicating his musical pursuits to that end." Head goes to India to build orphanages; releases Christian metal album and memoir, both named "Save Me from Myself"; everyone notices that Head has looked a whole lot like J.C. the entire time.

The story's changed, but the music's still the same: shrieking, chunky and raw, as in both "painfully honest" and "undercooked."

Christian acts Decyfer Down and The Letter Black open alongside Fayetteville's The Wedding.
