HELMET & FU MANCHU Thinking man’s metal meets skate metal meets ’70s rock metal for a fuzz fest that will leave concertgoers with contact cottonmouth and bleeding ears. As veterans of the early ’90s post-hardcore punk genre, both bands have earned solid followings and gone on to influence a new era of heavy metal — emphasis on the heavy. Case in point: new kids on the block Year Long Disaster who will join them for this evening of heart-pounding head-banging.
Wednesday, March 4. House of Blues, 8430 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 848-5100.
