Black Label Society with Children of Bodom and Clutch
@ Sound Academy (11 Polson St)
$64 adv., doors @ 6:30
You'd need a king's ransom to get a ticket to this mainstream metal double-header, but you're not likely to find a better night out if you're into the heavier side of things. Arguably two of the biggest names in the field right now. But hey, if head-banging and moshing isn't your thing - or you just have better taste than this - there's a lot going on tonight, so have your pick.
