Metallica at KeyArena, obviously.

Dub Trio, Witchburn, Middle Class Rut, Black Cobra at El Corazon, 7 p.m., $10

Three session and touring musicians extraordinaire (guitarist DP

Holmes, bassist Stu Brooks and drummer Joe Tomino) -- musicians who've

collectively worked with the likes of Tupac Shakur, Mike Patton, 50

Cent, Mos Def, and scads of others -- comprise Brooklyn instrumental

outfit Dub Trio, which mixes spacey, psychedelic dub with heroic doses

of metal and touches of math-rock, jazz, funk, stoner rock and skittery

electronics. The band's chops can't be disputed, but rather than

substitute technical wizardry for good ol' songs and emotion, leaving

the listener cold, Dub Trio attacks with crushing riffs, frenzied

rhythms and whiplash shifts that can take your breath away like a fist

to the gut, right before chilling you out with trippy grooves and

billowy, shoegazerish passages. MICHAEL ALAN GOLDBERG
