Its August fools summer is ending but the shows are still going strong. Here are seven bands you need to check out this week.
Find a way to grow your hair out before this show just so you can head band appropriately. This band is Sludge Metal at its finest. I have never had a bad time at a Leviathan show that I did not love. In a small room like the Bug Jar all you have to do is sit back and let the waves of sound this band puts out hit you. Highest Leviathan plays with Hivelords and Enthapyung at The Bug Jar August 4th.

A remarkably talented band that mixes a fuzzy jazz-like sound with tongue-in-cheek lyrics. You don’t have to believe me, just check out their latest single titled ‘Many At Once’ with was released last month.
