Hank III @ Metro

In the grand tradition of families full of musicians, Hank Williams III plays his version country-fused rock at the Metro tonight. Hank says he's 100% "Hellbilly" and I think the show is sure to be turned up to "11". Tickets are $16, admission is available to all 18+, and it'll be a surefire way to rock out towards Monday morning.
