Captain Incredible, Hellbound Hooligans, MercyKill, Lust For Lucy, How Fiction Ends and Resonant Chamber will all rock the hell out of the Skillman Street Bar this Sunday.

Musically, the lineup varies from greasy hard-rocking punk to metal. More interesting is the contrast in lyrical themes. Captain Incredible gives a shout-out to Satan in "See You When You're Dead," and Hellbound Hooligans' name speaks for itself. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Resonant Chamber describe themselves as "Christian metal."

Intentionally or not, that contrast is echoed in the gig poster for the show, which appears to be an irreverent depiction of George and Kuato from the great 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi flick Total Recall. The fully formed George looks like a handsome, stoic man, while his mutant twin, on the other hand, is one ugly little baby-headed dude--and judging by that sign-of-the-devil, he wants to rock!

I haven't heard back yet, but I'm guessing the designer is someone from Captain Incredible, as many of the band's posters are similar in style. Will update as soon as I know.

Update: The designer is Captain Incredible rhythm guitarist Ben Piche.
