For the unbeatable cost of free, here's a chance to see four of Portland's heaviest rockers in one night. Danava have reportedly put the finishing touches on album number three, and if it's anything like their first two—or "The Illusion Crawls," their contribution to a 12-inch split with Earthless and Lecherous Gaze from earlier this year—it'll be a welcome throwback to the bong-huffing days of early '70s metal, when blues and psych and prog all violently collided and turned the volume way, way up. Wizard Rifle, meanwhile, make a full-throttle, athletic squall with just two members, and White Orange are on the cusp of releasing their self-titled debut (out September 20), in which shoegaze riffs are exploded to the biggest size imaginable. Get there in plenty of time for Sons of Huns, whose exhilarating concoction of punk and metal make them one of the best up-and-coming bands in town. NED LANNAMANN
