—Sick of it All , Iron Reagan, DDC
Sick of it All is a classic New York City hardcore outfit who’s on the road playing songs from their latest album, Wake the Sleeping Dragon! So you’ll hear new stuff, but their back catalog is deep, going all the way back to 1989’s Blood, Sweat and No Tears — short, like one-minute, maybe a minute-and-a-half songs. There’s a song called “Clobberin' Time/Pay the Price” that was a classic for a young me. There was another one called “Rat Pack.” Part of a generation of CBGB bands that are just as important as Television, Blondie, the Ramones, et al. $18. 8 p.m. Masquerade (Hell).
—Atlanta Fermentation Fest
Attendees of the third annual Atlanta Fermentation Festival can sample, purchase, and barter fermented products from dozens of local and regional artisans, while learning about the process and benefits of fermentation through live demonstrations and educational talks.
