Heavy metal band Baroness play The Fillmore tonight (Sept. 3)



BARONESS Since forming in 2003, the Savannah-based Baroness isn't an overnight success story, but it is, by most folks' accounting, one of the best heavy American bands going. A little more melodic than say a Mastodon (whom it has opened for), Baroness has played Charlotte before (mostly at places like The Milestone), but is finally getting its just desserts (or at least room service) on the road. After this tour with Deftones, the band will be supporting Metallica in Australia. Expect plenty of tracks from the 2007 standout, The Red Album (Revolver's Album of the Year) and last year's The Blue Album, one of this writer's favorite records of that year. Let's just hope the members don't call their next one "Hurley." With Deftones. $38, The Fillmore Charlotte, www.livenation.com
