Torche

As espoused in my preview of tonight's show, Torche is not your typical metal band. Then again, what's typical these days in a genre so intensely subdivided? They're certainly as loud and heavy as you'd hope from a titan of the genre, so it's not like they'll be out of place after Lo-Pan and Churches Burn open at The Summit, 2210 Summit St. Doors open at 8 p.m., and tickets cost $10.
