Smart Bets: Orange Goblin

Despite metal music being listed as a factor in juvenile delinquency in certain academic reports, London-based metal outfit Orange Goblin describes the genre as "a motivating mindset, a positive force and an inspirational belief system." The quartet has been taking cues from progenitors like Black Sabbath, Black Flag and Thin Lizzy since the mid-90s, honing its skills as "crowd-pleasers and party masters." Last year, the band released A Eulogy for the Damned and is still touring in support of that album. Orange Goblin takes the stage at Broadway's on Thursday, Nov. 7, with Holy Grail and Lazer/Wulf. 9:30 p.m., $15. A tree will be planted for each ticket sold. No, really.
