When Providence, R.I.’s art-noise kings Lightning Bolt perform with Metz opening up, it’s hard to emphasize enough how much you should be at this show. This might be one of the most brutal, fun, and brutally fun groups in existence. We’re talking Thee Oh Sees/Boredoms/Rush levels of super badassery here. They tend to set up on the ground wherever they play, and the audience morphs around them and is driven to ecstatic whirling frenzies. The two Brians (Chippendale on drums and vocals, and Gibson on bass) are geniuses, who’ve been doing this for 18 years.
