Helios Creed
Room 710, Friday 21

If this bill were any heavier, your ears would be eligible for federal disaster relief. Founding Chrome guitarist Helios Creed twists the riffs over, under, and against themselves in an inhumane manner that might be called arty if it weren't kicking you in the teeth. Joining Creed for one night only are local travelers Jeff Pinkus of Honky and Crust e-man Jerry Page. Austin transplants Dixie Witch take a break from road-hogging to support, while celebrated newcomers the Sword ply mind-warping heavy metal thunder first.
