Bring September to a noisy end with a night of metal at the one and only Blue Lamp. Seattle’s popular heavy post-metal band, Witch Ripper, will be in town to celebrate their new album, Homestead. On the strength of a self-titled EP before Homestead, Witch Ripper—comprised of Joe Eck (drums), Curtis Parker (vocals, guitar), Coltan Anderson (guitar) and Brian Kim (bass)—quickly became an important part of Seattle’s metal underground and a favorite in the scene. The evening will also include performances by Nevada City post-metal band Aequorea and Sacramento blackened sludge band Ctrl All Delete. This will be an event that you will not want to miss, so come get ripped and witchy with Witch Ripper and friends on a chill Tuesday night. This is a 21-plus event and takes place Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. with a $10 cover. Blue Lamp is located at 1400 Alhambra Blvd., Sacramento.
