SPA CITY METAL FEST
5 p.m., Maxine's, $8 adv., $10 door

Now this right here is what you call a good ol' fashioned grip of Arkansas metal bands, headlined by one of the state's best acts of any era or genre. If you don't know Rwake by now, you need to get out from under that mossy rock. The sludge band's 2002 album "Hell is a Door to the Sun" was just remixed, remastered and reissued by Relapse Records, and the group is set to drop "Rest," its fourth album, later this summer. This show starts early. After all, including Rwake there are eight bands on the bill: From Which We Came, Legions Await, Murder in August, Seemless, This Island Earth, Vail and She Breathes Fire.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
