Canadian thrash metal band and documentary stars Anvil are currently on a lengthy U.S. tour and have an Orlando show set for this weekend.

The band, active since 1978, was profiled in the real-life Spinal Tap/underdog-makes-good film Anvil: The Story of Anvil in 2008. This led to a second act for the band – including a tour with AC/DC – that continues to this day.

Anvil plays the West End Trading Co. on Saturday night at 6 p.m. alongside Night Demon, Graveshadow, Question, and Dylan Mathews & the Flips.

Tickets are $16 and can be purchased here.
