Bands4Bands Presents MetalFest 09' 

Sat., Oct. 10, 1 p.m. 2009
Price: free

San Lorenzo-based musicians' alliance Bands4Bands will put Bay Area independent music to work for the greater good at its 2009 MetalFest concert and canned-food drive. The organization, which achieved nonprofit status last year, encourages bands -- particularly of the metal variety -- to find strength in numbers, but also to give back to the greater community through fund-raisers and benefits. Now in its third year and enshrined as the granddaddy of Bands4Bands' annual calendar, MetalFest is also likely the loudest canned-food drive you'll find anywhere in the EastBay. This year's lineup features headliner Concrete Coffin alongside B4B bands Potential Threat, In the Absence, Mudsoc, Kaos, Mystic Rage, Age of Aggression, And All Was Lost, and MCP. At the Memorial Park Amphitheater (24176 Mission Blvd., Hayward) on Saturday, October 10. 1 p.m., free. MySpace.com/bands4bandsorganization
