Alchemy Tavern has put together a metallic bill that will add to the raucous Mardi Gras vibe the Conde Cavaliers bring each year. Two Azalea City metal groups will set the tone for the evening.

D.R.E.A.D.’s furious sound has made it a favorite with metalheads locally and beyond. Demonic vocals are set to arrangements that harken back to the early days of bands such as Anthrax and Slayer. Curse the Flash will perpetuate the darkness with its grand, vehement riffs and vocals conjured from the depths of Hell.

Headliner Green Jelly will spread equal parts potent metal and offbeat humor. In 1992, this band established its following with the multimedia breakout “Cereal Killer.” Using tracks such as “Three Little Pigs” and “Anarchy in Bedrock,” Green Jelly won listeners with its hilarious songs and companion music videos.

When it comes to the band’s live show, Green Jelly is known for featuring a vast menagerie of cartoonish characters from its catalog. Fans can expect the release of Green Jelly’s next effort, “Garbage Band Kids,” before the end of the year.
