Artist: Struck by Lightning Song: "The Herd"

Greg Lahm's first project since leaving Mouth of the Architect is a bit more straightforward than his former band's atmospheric slow-build. Struck by Lightning is about big riffs at breakneck speeds, tapping into more of a classic speed metal sound, and "The Herd" is a proud showcase of the band's mastery of their genre's essentials. See them do their thing Saturday outside Surly Girl Saloon as they close out the Here Comes Your Weekend Parking Lot Blowout at 10:30 p.m.
