Riding high on the release of their strongest album yet, "Freedom Metal," Chicago's (choose one) smartest metalheads/most lucid stoner-rockers Bible of the Devil take the stage Saturday night at Double Door, 1572 N. Milwaukee, following opening sets by the mighty Beatallica, Admiral of Black and Thistles and Thorns starting at 8 p.m. The over is $8; for more information, call (773) 489-3160 or visit www.doubledoor.com.
It might still seem as if the '90s only ended yesterday, but the recent flowering of alternative nostalgia is in full bloom, and the Abbey Pub, 3420 W. Grace, is taking full advantage with "Seattle Grunge Night" starting at 9 p.m. Friday. Performers include Nevermind (a tribute to Nirvana), Given2Fly (a Pearl Jam cover band) and Angry Chair (a group that pays homage to Alice in Chains), and tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
