by LUKE BAUMGARTEN & r & & r & & lt;span class= & quot;dropcap & quot; & D & lt;/span & espite what the activities on your college's quad might suggest, 420 isn't just for jam bands and djembes. Metalheads observe the stoner holiday. So do horror rappers. The day's built-in illegality discourages open advertisement, so we thought it'd be fun to guess where the high kids will be.





420 show with Rutah


Reasoning: The most obvious comes from an unobvious source. Weed and anti-Christian sentiment mix at the Black Metallists' CD release show. In the words of one incredulous MySpace commenter, "420 with RUTAH? OH I AM SO ALREADY THERE, LOL."


The Spread with Sand and Benign. 9 pm. $4. Call 456-4515.





Celebration of Colors IX


Reasoning: You had us at "multicultural music and dance." Add to that the Middle Eastern style percussion of the Scabland Band and you've got a nice, sedate way to bite some beats.


The Bing. 7 pm. $15. Visit www.ticketswest.com or call 325-SEAT.





Dead Poet and Wildcard


Reasoning: MySpace weed banners belie Dead Poet's nimble, complex naturalistic flows chronicling, among other things, drug addiction.


Centerstage with Mo-B and Mr. Mr. 7 pm. $10; $12 at the door. Call 747-5362.





DJ JAH


Reasoning: Roots reggae, c'mon.


Prago. 9 pm to close. Free. Call 443-0404.
