As many of Basement Transmissions’ core patrons reluctantly count down their last days of summer to prepare to go back to school, the BT crew is giving them one last hurrah, with the Back to School Metal Jam on Saturday, Aug. 29.

Metal bands of varying subgenres including death metal, thrash, and metalcore, are the focus of this local and regional showcase. Manokin and Tear From Grace from Meadville, Rogues from Dayton, Ohio, and Erie’s own Gelatin Skeleton and Beyond Silence are making sure they don’t give up their summer without a fight – or at least some moshing. – Tommy Shannon

6 p.m. // Basement Transmissions, 145 W. 11th St. // $8 // All Ages
