DANZIG
Master fiend Glenn Danzig is on the road marking 25 years in the noise biz for his namesake band. Of course, he lurked in the catacombs of horror punk way before that, when he fronted the much-imitated Misfits and later spawned the darker, gothic punk of Samhain. And then with a wrestler's swagger, mic and fists flying, hair flailing, Danzig launched the blues-metal of his namesake band in 1988. Experimentation permeates Danzig's work. He has left fans scratching their heads along the way with albums laden with industrial mayhem, electronic dirges and even quasi-classical outings. But on his latest album, Deth Red Sabaoth, he returned to the unholy mélange of punk, metal and blues. The record is one of his best, bringing together the elements of his past works. On this tour, ex-Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein joins him for what's sure to be a bone-crushing affair. With Butcher Babies, Texas Hippie Coalition and A Pale Horse Named Death. $27.50. Oct. 13, 7 p.m. The Fillmore, 1000 N.C. Music Factory Blvd. 704-916-8970.
