1042 N. Mills Ave.
$8-$10 (one-day pass)
The heaviest of last yearâ€™s rash of one-day mini music fests returns in expanded form, and itâ€™s gonna come down like a two-day hailstorm of boulders aimed at Mills Avenue. Last yearâ€™s inaugural You Are Doomed Fest crowned the mostly Floridian lineup with the thrilling destruction of Atlanta noise-rock leviathans Whores. This year, the beacon looks like itâ€™ll be Holly Hunt, the Miami duo of Gavin Perry and Beatriz Monteavaro (from the now-legendary Floor) thatâ€™s a minimal but mammoth haymaker of drone, doom and sludge. Saturdayâ€™s bill features Holly Hunt, Legions, Fire in the Cave, Hollow Leg, Demons and North & South. And Sunday closes with Junior Bruce (pictured), Portals, Dissident Aggressor and Primary Colors. Organizers 90 Proof Productions and Orlandooom have been leading the way in making metal respectable in this city recently, and this well-curated festival is the summit of their work. â€“ Bao Le-Huu
