Hit the bong and head to the Doner on Saturday, that holiest of holidays for the steadfastly baked among us. Weed and metal go together like peanut butter and chocolate (or like weed, peanut butter and chocolate), and Endless Riffs Fest seems designed to celebrate both pursuits. Organized by Shadebeast Records, which has galvanized the local metal scene and plans to start a Sunday concert series this summer, the show features a stellar selection of heavy bands from Athens and Atlanta, including sludge masters Savagist, black-metal grinders Malevich and doom duo Dead Vibes Ensemble. Scuzzy Louisiana band WOORMS should appeal to fans of Melvins and early White Zombie.
ENDLESS RIFFS FEST Celebrate tokers' favorite holiday with a lineup of heavy music, featuring Savagist, Malevich, Marses, Apparition, Woorms and Dead Vibes Ensemble. See Calendar Pick on p. 20.
