Metalcore fans are no doubt excited for genre champs August Burns Red’s Bogart’s stop this week, not only to catch the headliners, but also to hear the band’s high-quality tourmates, which include Ohio stars Miss May I and Australia’s Northlane. Birmingham, Ala., band Erra might be the least known on the tour’s bill, but its progressive stylings are definitely worth arriving early. The quartet has been building its name with a ruthless live presence and a diverse sound that shows elements of Thrash and Classic Metal and is marked by engaging, atypical song arrangements. The hard-touring Erra, which cites Misery Signals and As I Lay Dying among its primary influences, released two well-received full-lengths for the Tragic Hero label and is currently touring in support of its debut for Sumerian Records (home to bands like Circa Survive and The Dillinger Escape Plan) and first release with new vocalist Ian Eubanks, an EP titled Moments of Clarity


5:30 p.m. Wednesday. $22.50. Bogart’s, 2621 Vine St., Corryville, bogarts.com.
