A band is only as good as its audience. Like sex, if all participants aren’t vigorously engaged in the act, you aren’t getting the most out of the experience. And by that yardstick, Municipal Waste is the best band in the city. It gives as good as it gets, and in the process, both band and audience come together as one. It really is a beautiful thing. The recorded works by the longtime Richmond trash metal champions are a rare fetish, but when the band doles out its blitzkrieg bop live, it is group sex at its finest. And what it does isn’t a he-man trip either; their joyous romps demand a level of civility you won’t find in most pits with an emphasis not on violent masculine posturing, but on a collective good time. See them play Vinyl Conflict’s second annual Turkey Slaughter on Friday, Nov. 22, at Kingdom, with Toxic Holocaust, Ramming Speed, In Defiance and Hellbear. Doors open for the all-ages show at 7 p.m. Admission is $15. kingdomrva.com.
