Danava, Federation X, Leaders, Gaytheist 

When: Fri., July 22, 9 p.m. 2011

Federation X has become like Halley's Comet. With a bit of luck and timing you might just catch a glimpse. And if you do, consider yourself blessed. But Federation X isn't some far-off twinkle through a telescope—it's the hell-shaking thud of a fiery asteroid slamming into earth. A working band through the late '90s and mid-'00s, Federation X have since dropped off the map almost entirely. The trio's last record came out in 2005 and in the last few years they've played only a handful of dates, often few and far between. It's a damn shame. Federation X is a stunning hybrid. Too ADD to be stoner rock and too melodic to be metal, the trio shreds sweaty, hooked headbangers, and like Nirvana, they once employed Steve Albini as an engineer. Come to think of it, mix Albini's Shellac with some Nirvana and you'd damn near get Fed X. ANDREW R TONRY
