Relapse Contamination Tour 

7 p.m. Tuesday, September 5. Creepy Crawl (3524 Washington Boulevard).

When you put "shit" or "fuck" right in your band's name, you're officially going after a certain demographic — and nobody else. New Orleans sludgepushers Facedowninshit are not looking to get on TRL, or even Headbanger's Ball for that matter: They're after the folks who wish Eyehategod toured more. Unearthly Trance works a similar doom/ sludge rut — their latest, The Trident, is loud, slow and ugly. (They get extra points for being from Long Island and still sounding like they were fished out of the waterlogged, post-Katrina wreckage.) And despite being named for a Naked City song, Fuck the Facts are slightly less arty — although they have a secret weapon: their female vocalist, Mel Mongeon, who screams even harder than Arch Enemy's Angela Gossow.
