Saint Vitus, Mos Generator, Sons of Huns 

When: Sat., May 17, 8 p.m. 2014
Price: $14
One of the bedrock bands of doom metal, Saint Vitus didn't hit their stride until the mid '80s and early '90s. While thrash and the nascent death metal and grindcore of the day were often testing land-speed records, Vitus delivered three classics of plodding, bluesy, groove-oriented metal in Born Too Late, Mournful Cries, and V. Not that there isn't plenty to enjoy on their other records (with singers Scott Reagers or Chritus Linderson), but it's those with Obsessed/Spirit Caravan frontman Scott "Wino" Weinrich that resonate best. So when Saint Vitus released its first album in 17 years (2012's Lillie: F-25), the fact that Wino was once again behind the mic made it all the sweeter. MATTHEW W. SULLIVAN
