Michael Deeds recommends

The Sword: Friday, Neurolux. Skull-crushing Austin, Texas, band fuses 1970s-influenced hard rock and heavy metal.

Brand New: Friday, Revolution Center. Long Island, N.Y. rockers are celebrating 10th anniversary of album “The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me” by performing entire album every night on this tour.

Infected Mushroom: Saturday, Revolution Center. Israeli electronic band headlines Freaky Fest, which should be a major Halloween weekend highlight.
