Lancaster, Pennsylvania, quintet August Burns Red is touring in support of last year’s Messengers, which considerably raised the bar after their first offering, Thrill Seeker, in 2005. No sophomore slump for this pummeling crew — they created Messengers with the intention of rising above the din of everything metal. Though lacking a bit in the lyrical department, the music’s pumped full of adrenaline, incorporating chunky breakdowns, flaming guitar work, and occasional melodic vocals. $12/16, 7pm, White Rabbit, 2410 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 737-2221.
