Little Nicky (2000) -In a perfect world, he'd be happy to head-bang in his room all day to heavy metal music. But no, his mom is an angel, his old man is the devil, and like all good fathers, he insists that Nicky get involved in the "family business." Nicky could think of 666 things he'd rather be doing than corrupting souls or spewing evil, but when his father's command over Hades is threatened by his bullying older brothers, it's up to unbalanced Nicky to restore the balance between Good and Evil on Earth

Thursday, August 2
Ekumen | Destroy All Bigots | Ex-Vicus
Thursday, August 2. Saturn Bar. 9PM. $5-7.
Ekumen are a bunch of people who read too many books and play 2005's hottest emotive hardcore. This time they are playing as a 6 piece before they head out for some ill fated out-of-town shows. Destroy All Bigots are some angry noisy boys who sound like they really enjoy the Jesus Lizard and really hate prejudice. You could tell me that Ex Vicus got lost enroute to Gainesville and just decided to settle down in New Orleans and I would believe it. Slam some PBRs and sing your goddamned heart out like you used to before you got so detached and ironic.
