Mellowness might be anathema to Louisville's Coliseum, judging by its reckless velocity and nihilistic harangues. "My lungs are filled with fumes...There's no air in this city/I need something pure," sings Ryan Patterson on 2004's "This Mind Locked Inside This Body." The band's anti-authority lyrics and relentless backbeat qualify it as punk enough, and it occasionally unleashes the sort of reverberating sludge riffs that make metal stoners swoon. But Coliseum is essentially a hard-rock band, with Patterson conjuring Motorhead (with his Lemmy-like death-wheeze vocals) and Motley Crue (with his sleazy/flashy Mick Mars-style solos).

Coliseum, with Young Livers. Thursday, April 2. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Doors open at 8 p.m. (supposedly). Ages 18+ with ID. 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com
