Valient Thorr, Ramming Speed, Black Oatmeal 

When: Sun., Sept. 29, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $10
In advance of the nationwide tour that brings Valient Thorr to its somewhat-native Chapel Hill, the brazen and delightfully political metal dudes printed gargantuan black-and-white stickers bearing their logo—a few feet high and several more feet wide. They've been leaving them all across the country, from the walls of Raleigh's Contemporary Art Museum to venue trash cans on the West Coast. Those stickers are a perfect metaphor for Valient Thorr's approach to most everything; they're boisterous and proudly exaggerated, stuffing high-flying riffs and hyperbolic social commentary into invigorating rock jams. Their latest, the heart-on-its-sleeveless-tees Our Own Masters, is their best yet. Boston's Ramming Speed lunges in and out of thrash, death and black metal; their latest, Doomed to Destroy, Destined to Die, is a knotty, kinetic race to the end. The new and incredibly named Black Oatmeal opens. —Grayson Currin
