When: Tue., Sept. 19, 6 p.m.
If you’re going to have a name like Slaves, you better be really angry. Unsurprisingly, California post-hardcore foursome (and newbies) Slaves is one part high school angst and two parts “I’m-a-grown-adult-living-in-mom’s-basement wrath, though with a dash of existential disarray. Though there have been several changes in their lineup (a guitarist here, a skinny jean-fueled knife attack in Sacramento there) lead singer Jonny Craig admits that they are on the mend and pushing through. What’s more hardcore than that?
Doors open at 6 p.m.; 22634 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-820-5596; thelovingtouchferndale.com; Tickets are $15.
