Peelander-Z with Stiff Middle Fingers, Coitus at Record Bar 9 PM $10
There really is no way to explain how much fun and legendary every single Peelander-Z performance is. If you’ve seen them – you know. If not: maybe some of these videos can show you the kind of unforgettable craziness that happens at these shows. Part punk rock, part anime giant robots, part Japanese wrestling – all insane. Stiff Middle Fingers and Coitus open, making it well worth your time and money to attend the funnest show of the year.

Raven with Night Demon, Meatshank, Alsatia at Riot Room 8 PM $10
Blazing their own path for 40 years, British heavy/speed metal titans Raven return to Kansas City to melt everyone’s faces. In fact, Raven has been a force in heavy metal for so long, Metallica at one point opened shows for them! Good old-fashioned heavy/speed metal for the metalhead inside everyone. Exciting up-and-coming metal band Night Demon is direct support, along with the always great Meatshank and Alsatia opening!

Eyehategod with Keef Mountain, Ignis Gratis, Leering Heathens at The Riot Room 8 PM $15
Celebrating their 26th year of existence, the legendary sludge/doom act Eyehategod makes a rare area appearance on Wednesday to terrorize everybody in Kansas City. Extremely volatile, abrasive and influential, Eyehategod has mixed the grooves of southern heavy metal with the punk disgustingness from the crust/d-beat scene of the late 80s. Their latest self-titled album might be their heaviest yet. A legendary band for sure. Amazing opening bands as well.
