Today's local band is Brainoil, a doom and sludge-metal group from Oakland. They’re one of 25 bands descending on a new bar this weekend for The Awakening Metalfest. Brainoil will be thrashing their guitars this Friday at Neck of the Woods, on Clement Street in San Francisco, the site of the old Rockit Room. They go on at 9:20pm. Don’t be late!
