THE SWORD/TORCHE/ASG/TARANTULA AD With Masquerade's Infinity Room having gone bye-bye along with the rest of the club, Aestheticized Presents has moved several of its shows out to the Skatepark of Tampa's Transitions Gallery. File this one under comparatively slow and crushingly heavy. Raised on a steady diet of Sabbath, Melvins and Sleep, Austin's The Sword will hurt you in the best of ways. So will Floridian favorite Torche, which last destroyed this room, like, 10 minutes ago. North Carolina's more upbeat (but no less threatening) ASG and the inimitable, often perplexing multi-instrumental mix of European folk, classical and metal that is Tarantula A.D. provide support. (Skatepark of Tampa, Tampa)

KRUNK NIGHT Tastemakers and the aforementioned Aestheticized Presents turn Wednesday night over to HB Video and Dem MOB DJ's principal and Wild 98.7 veteran DJ Headbussa; he and WMNF's DJ Lowdown are bringing an evening of hip-hop ranging from spun krunk tunes to live rap from around the state. Rising Tampa-by-way-of-O-Town MC J-Rod performs, along with the smooth Da Fam, Deca, Spring Hill's Hard Target and West Palm Beach's Sean Simp. (New World Brewery, Ybor City)
