Wanna rock? Heres where:



Week to week, metal audiences in Orlando are blessed with a wide variety of concert choices, with strong showings from local bands and national ones. While most all-ages shows go down at Hard Rock Live or House of Blues, those gigs take place maybe two or three times a month. The rest of the time, it's watering holes like the estimable Lost and Found in Longwood that keep the metal hordes sated with beer and riffs. Here's a sampling of metal gigs over the next seven days.
