Los Angeleno doom stalwart Saint Vitus first cranked up their amps 35 years ago. The foursome—originally active from 1978 to 1996—made a fitful restart in 2003 and fully revived the band in 2008. Saint Vitus’ latest full-length, Lillie: F-65, hit shelves in 2012 ... 17 years after last release Die Healing in 1995. If it seems like I’m dwelling on history here, it’s because I am. It’s not every day that guys in their 50s reform their renowned band and hit the road to bring metal to the masses. And even if it was commonplace, it would still be noteworthy. On Thursday, May 8, bang your head and flash the sign of the horns at Launchpad (618 Central SW) with Saint Vitus and Portlandite stoner-rock trio Sons of Huns. This 21-plus concert screams to life at 9:30pm, and tickets will run you $15.
