Cory Smoot, also known as Flattus Maximus from Gwar, died in November. The loss was felt by not only the metal heads but pretty much all of Richmond. Before Smoot’s death, his solo record, “When Worlds Collide,” had just been pressed and was ready for distribution. A few of his music friends decided to pay homage to their departed friend with a memorial show celebrating his life and releasing the album to Smoot’s fans. The night will feature the metal and rock antics of bands such as Mensrea, Cannabis Corpse, Antietam 1862, the Dave Brockie Experience, Throne from Royalty and Make Like Murder. Raffle prizes have been donated by various groups including Guitar Center Richmond, Bob Tyrrell’s Night Gallery Tattoo, Schecter Guitars, Bandito’s and merchandise by many local bands. All proceeds from the show go directly to the Smoot family. The Cory Smoot Experiment CD Release and Memorial Show bangs heads at the Canal Club on Saturday, Jan. 7, at 6 p.m. $10. 643-2582.
