Shai Hulud with One Year Later and Better Days at Fubar
May 28
8 p.m. / $12 to $14

Shai Hulud's roots are in hardcore, but the band has more in common musically with a progressive-metal band like Cynic or even Propagandhi than the likes of Agnostic Front. Instead of a chest-puffing tough-guy routine, listeners will find intricate guitar melodies with colorful chords and scales, with the occasional chugging slam selection to let the audience know that in addition to being extremely heartfelt, this band is also still really fucking pissed. Throughout its near twenty years, Shai Hulud has had many lineup changes, but guitarist Matt Fox and bassist Matt Fletcher have kept the band as alive and dedicated as the beyond-sincere lyrics to one of its songs.

No Hanneman no care. Also Kerry King is a cunt.

No Lombardo? No thanks. Without Jeff Hanneman is bad enough, but without Lombardo it just ain't Slayer.

Go for Suicidal. Stick around for Pig Destroyer the day after.

It looks like an Old School set list.
