A former Metallica tribute band, Apocalyptica has blossomed into its own neo-classical headbanging force over a 20-plus-year career. Composed of three cellists and a drummer, the Finnish group creates a melodic, thundering sound. With the recent addition of a full-time singer, Apocalyptica is poised to take its craft to an even more accessible level.
8 p.m. May 28, Revolution Center, 4983 Glenwood St., Garden City. $25 general ($30 at door), $55 VIP. Ticketfly. Opening: Art of Dying.
