It'll be a hellaciously hard and heavy night of music with this year's Survival of the Fittest Fest. The show features local mavens like Diluted, Rip Open The Sky — don't get it confused with the Christian rock album by Remedy Drive — one of my favorite hardcore bands, A Fitting Revenge, Undead Messengers, Plagues of Endeavor, and Symmetrical Defiance.
Survival of the Fittest Fest 2017 happens Saturday, November 18, at Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut Street. 6:30 p.m. $7-$10. themontagemusichall.com.
