Heavy-metal icon Glenn Danzig’s Blackest of the Blackest festival has taken several incarnations throughout its 20-year history, at times being a full, nationwide tour; other times a single-day event. This year’s installment is going the destination-festival route and expanding to a two-day celebration of heavy music and dark art. Danzig’s headlining performance is the main draw on Saturday night. Heavy-metal’s man in black has lined up Venice hardcore heroes Suicidal Tendencies to headline on Friday night. Friday-night’s lineup also includes Inland Empire deathcore titans Suicide Silence and rising L.A. industrial-metal faves 3Teeth. Saturday’s bill is highlighted by Al Jourgensen’s industrial veterans Ministry and Japanese hard-rockers Vamps. All of the festivities will be surrounded by interactive, haunted house–style attractions inspired by Danzig’s music and graphic novels. Also on Saturday, May 27.
