This week's flier of the week, for the Wild West Summer Fest at Club 910, includes all three, which is fitting because the festival's a metal melee featuring some of the Valley's heaviest bands, like Sicmonic, Lurid State, God Hunter, and Impulsive Aggression. And those are just some of the bands on stage one. There will be a second stage with five more bands, including Detox and Signs of Solace.
