6 p.m. Downtown Music Hall. $8.

For the last six years, the guys in Little Rock metal outfit Drop Dead Syndicate and their manager James Funderburk have hosted Synfest, a big throw-down that includes their friends and fellow travelers from across the spectrum of heaviness.

This year's event will include all manner of metal maniacs, but it is also a benefit fundraiser for the organizers' friend Dana Rucker and her five-year-old daughter Maddie, who is battling brain cancer. The two-night festival couldn't be for a better cause, and you also won't find more metal for your money anywhere else.

Friday night's lineup includes Dirtyfinger, Demitrious in Ground Zero, Land of Mines, Rollo Tumasi, Rusty Hook, Gemini, At War's End.

Saturday night's show includes Suffocatinghatred, Driven to Madness, Attack the Mind, Tha Mutha Load, Drop Dead Syndicate, The Midnight Ghost Train, Eddie and The Defiantz.

    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.
