Stumpfest returns for the eighth year in a row to spend a weekend celebrating all things heavy and eclectic. Thursday’s lineup features the gothic post-doom of ceremonialists Atriarch and the disjointed hardcore gnarl of Baptists. On Friday the aptly named Feral Ohms will kick out the jams with some fuzzy, unhinged rock ’n’ roll, with Earthless finishing off the night with their psychedelic, stomping grooves. The festival wraps up Sunday with the jangly garage-rock of the Lavender Flu and the synth-driven, Steely Dan-tinged Once and Future Band.
