A survey of Lansing's musical landscape
Hail Santa! Local metalheads will put their devil horns to good use with a holiday charity show Saturday at the Loft. Taking the stage are St8 of Mine, Five Hundredth Year, My Perfect Nightmare and New Day Revolution. There will be a food/toy drive and raffles for door prizes, with all proceeds going to the Homeless Angels of Lansing. “Like new” or “gently used” toys are acceptable; gifts cards are also welcome. Headliner St8 of Mine, a Laingsburg-based hardcore band inspired by Slipknot, Pantera and Mudvayne, is vocalist Steve Jodway, Mike Martin (drums), Corey Smith (bass) and guitarists Shawn Willett and Matt Martin. The song “False Crown,” a teaser for the band’s upcoming album, is streamed at facebook. com/st8ofmine.
