Kind of a junior varsity tour, and here’s why: Earlier this year, the organizers of the long-running metal festival Summer Slaughter asked its Facebook followers to decide who would fill the tour’s final open slot. Within the Ruins scored the win, but the runners-up in the voting were left with nothing to do for the summer. And they wanted to, you know, slaughter some shit. Hence, the Slaughter Survivor tour, made up of those bands that didn’t win that Facebook contest, including local metalcore outfit The Contortionist and five other acts, some of which have a little better critical reputation than those playing the varsity tour — Conducting from the Grave, Scale the Summit, Rings of Saturn, Volumes and Structures.
Price: $12, all-ages
