Devil on Horseback, Fire King, Triple Thick
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)

You don't need to go to the Rumble for loud rock music. I might personally be more inclined to get a triple-shot with garage dudes Triple-Thick, hard-poppers Fire King, and old-school riffage from Devil on Horseback.
