8 p.m. Downtown Music Hall.

Over the last 20 years or so, I've seen venues come and go. Ask anyone who has ever put his or her own ass on the line to make a great show happen and that person will undoubtedly testify that it is a fickle, nerve-wracking, even cruel business. But for every shady promoter who rips off bands or fans, there are exponentially more who are just true-blue music lovers at heart who saw a need and tried to fulfill it.

And so it is that another Arkansas venue will be closing its doors. Downtown Music Hall has, for the better part of a decade, provided a home to the area's metal, hardcore, hip-hop and dance scenes. It's a shame that it's closing, but I really believe the odds are good that owner Samantha Allen will be back before long to continue booking shows and doing what she loves. This final night at Downtown Music will, quite appropriately, be one that'll have heads banging and eardrums ringing.

The lineup is Seahag, Napalm Christ, Iron Tongue, Crankbait and Jungle Juice.

    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.
