How one two-day festival can encompass so much ear-splitting goodness is hard to fathom. From Eyehategod, Blurring, Child Bite, and Weedeater to Off!, Negative Approach, Fuck You Pay Me, and Gwar, there are more variations on heaviness at this festival than can possibly be mapped, or adequately covered by bad comparisons to, oh, a battleship-building factory or the lead store where they sell large pieces of lead. This artist-run festival continues to thrive and get absolutely better each year. Also, don’t forget to bring earplugs for your earplugs.

Show runs Friday and Saturday, April 14 and 15, starts at 6 p.m. both nights. 1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac; 248-858-9333;; tickets are $40/$60.
