Sonata Arctica, Mutiny Within, Powerglove, A Thousand Shields 

When: Sat., May 1, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $20
Because we're in a generous mood, let's spare Sonata Arctica, a Finnish band one might consider to be heavy metal if we gave the same consideration to a scrap of aluminum foil. Let's assume there's a point to this musical equivalent of a Velveeta-glazed slab of Kraft singles. And that point, of course, is to lampoon the absurdity of overblown, overindulgent prog-metal and all its prominent-keyboard, clean-vocal pomp. Without the chops or songcraft of an Yngwie Malmsteen (or Dragonforce, for that matter), Sonata Arctica can't possibly be punting for relevance. Or can they? Mutiny Within, Powerglove and A Thousand Shields open. —Bryan Reed
