I don't get the revolution reference entirely here. I mean, the festival includes 35 of Rochester's best hard and heavy bands. Sounds like a majority to me. You can have your head and your eardrums handed back to you in a bag if you witness this incredibly relentless line-up. This ain't no battle. It's a healthy and positive coming together of like-minded banging heads. Maybe that's the revolution. Setiva, One Fate Remains, Mulu Lizzi, Lowkey, Burndwiller, and Caustic Method are just a fraction of the musical tonnage on display. Duck.
Thursday, July 25 through Sunday, July 28, 7 p.m. (Thur/Fri), 4 p.m., (Sat/Sun), Montage Music Hall, 50 Chestnut St., $6-$15, themontagemusichall.com.
