KNUCK FEST 2013
7 p.m. Downtown Music Hall. $8-$25.

In what is fast becoming a January tradition in Central Arkansas, Knuck Fest returns to transform the normally innocent confines of Downtown Music Hall into a vortex of anguished screams, guttural howls, ear-splitting amp-abuse and perhaps a lively moshpit or two.

Actually, I guess that would describe Downtown Music Hall on many nights, but these three will be especially loud and mosh-y, being overrun as they will be with punk, metal, hardcore and metalcore.

Here are the lineups: Friday features Bitter Times, Pose No Threat, Distiller, The Muddlestuds, Motives, Jungle Juice and Snakedriver.

Saturday has Soundcult, A Traitors Funeral, A Darkend Era, Strange as Fiction, Fallen Empire, Mainland Divide, Legions Await, Crankbait and Living Sacrifice.

Sunday sees brutal sets from Slamphetamine (killer name!), Rawhead, Deshoveled, Decay Awaits, Killing Souls and Fuck the Facts.

All in all, at $25 for a three-day pass, this is one of the best bargains in crushing, evil heaviness all year. And remember, all ye headbangers and mosh-maniacs — you can sleep when you're dead. The festivities continue at 4 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
