Raleigh
Winter Metal Fest
Lincoln Theatre—A $10, 10-band bill demands a mixed bag of acts and attitudes, and Lincoln Theatre's seventh annual Winter Metal Fest obeys: Twister Tower Dire and Praeterious, who sit atop this bill, come cast from classic British metal molds, whether it's TTD's mix of high, almost operatic verses and growl-and-chant refrains or Praetorius' straightforward stomp anthems. Here Lies claws at Morbid Angel's ghost with furious drum-and-two-guitar blasts, making ferocious death metal tempered by sharply carved melodies and riffs. Elsewhere, you get Johnston County's Hold Back the Day, who seems to depend on melodramatic samples more than its own songs, and Moncure metalcore act Killing Avarice, who plays for the last time tonight. And once again, look out for Worse Than Birth, a Raleigh unit that's twisting elements of grindcore, hardcore, prog and black metal into one vicious cycle. Also, Dead Tomorrow, Lunger, IV Chambers Broken and Black 29. Music starts at 3:30 p.m. —Grayson Currin

Chapel Hill
Rockin' Ammonia Karaoke
Local 506—"It's the most rock 'n' roll-oriented karaoke company in the Triangle, possibly anywhere," Jon Mitchell recently told Lisa Many, a DJ on Carrboro's community radio station WCOM 103.5 FM during her talk show on Chapel Hill's The People Channel. You might know Mitchell from his door gig at Local 506 or from his smoldering classic/ psychedelic rock DJ sets across the Triangle as Echoes from the Vaults, but his Rockin' Ammonia Karaoke company might be his best calling card yet. Traveling with a karaoke machine choking on five decades of rock glory, Mitchell invites you to bring your best Mick, Lou or Lemmy (or Patti, Janis or Joan, as it were) to the big stage. There's no cover, and the summoning begins at 9:30 p.m. —Grayson Currin
