The hardcore band Bear Garden hasn’t played a show since Homegrown 2009. “The time has come again,” according to singer Kyle Potter. “We want to play for our friends and for ourselves at least once more.” The show will no doubt be an exercise in blindingly fast songs with screaming vocals, and fans that know every word screaming right along. Kighle Ollah and Mikey Ferrin keep time together on drums and bass, respectively, in a seemingly impossible fashion, while Chris LeBlanc deftly handles the six-string as Potter leads the crowd in the sing-along.

8pm Fri 5/6 @ Beaner’s Central
