Veteran alt-rockers Helmet play the Social tonight


Monolithic alt-rockers and '90s survivors Helmet are due to play Orlando this week as part of extensive touring behind a new album, and the continuing need for catharsis through sonics. The band reformed in 2004 after a bit of a hiatus, most notably undertaking a tour where they played the well-regarded LP Betty (1994) from start to finish, but this new jaunt centers around a similarly new album, Dead to the World.

Helmet play The Social with Local H (buzz bin style) on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.
