St. Vitus - Club Red - Friday, May 9

In my opinion, you can't talk about doom metal or stoner rock without a mention of Saint Vitus. They've been rocking since the 1970s, and are seen as pioneers of such genres, alongside Pentagram and Witchfinder General -- the latter of which has been recently influencing an array of newer stoner rock bands. The band has had very few lineup changes, but did break up in 1996 before reuniting briefly in 2003. Since 2008 they've been running strong, and are currently working on new material; so pre-drink with some Jack Daniels and head over to this killer show. --Lauren Wise
