This year, WJCU 88.7 FM, Auburn Records, the Exchange and Iron Ingo Stührenberg will present the eighth annual event that takes place today at the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern. It's a signature event in town, and organizers encourage fans to bring non-perishable food items and/or cash donations to help those in need. This year’s event includes performances by the local death metal outfit Terror, which has just issued a remastered anthology of its demos, and a reunion of the underground ’80s act Chemkill, who’ll perform their first show in 25 years. Formerly of Manimals, Larry the Wolf will play Manimals tunes as well as his new single, “Countdown to Venus.” Other acts on the bill include Destructor, Ego, Hell and Back, Lotus Pedal, Lower 13, Olathia, Threefold Law and Wretch. The Metallica tribute band the Four Horsemen will make a special appearance along with the outlaw burlesque troupe the Red Hot Heathens and Playboy model Daniella Dior. (Niesel) free
