Sound check: Doyle rules with Bumsy, The Run Around at BaseCamp
The Afterlife ALT series brings rock god Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (formerly of the Misfits) to Lisle for a night of skull-crushing rock. Along with Alex Story, Wade Murff and Brandon Strate, Doyle’s “World Abomination Tour” doesn’t so much explore the dark and heavy side of rock and metal as much as it blasts it to smithereens. If you like your rock deep, rough and sonically explosive, make sure you catch this show, featuring local support from Bumsy and the Moochers, The Run Around and DayTime Hooker. 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at BaseCamp Pub, 5750 Lakeside Drive, Lisle. $15-$20. (331) 777-4712 or ticketweb.com.

River Lane, Geneva. $50. (815) 508-8007 or ravenshuskyhavenandrescue.org.
