The Knitting Factory is the place to be if you want to check out local bands, up and coming artists, or expand your musical horizons without spending a lot. Here, some can't miss shows during the month of July.

Blasphemous Creation
Fri., July 24
Doors: 7 p.m., Show: 8 p.m.
Price: $6
All ages

If heavy metal is your speed, check out Blasphemous Creation with Enslave the Creation, Ritual Genocide, and Ostracized on Fri., July 24. Blasphemous Creation hails from Reno and have been active in the music scene for almost a decade. They have two full-length albums and several EPs under their belts and are excited to take the stage at the Knitting Factory. Enslave the Creation is a death metal band from Reno joining Blasphemous Creation for their CD release party. Ritual Genocide's Facebook page classifies their genre as black/war metal and their songs definitely sound like people are fighting a battle. Ostracized is a heavy metal band from Reno. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $6. Tickets are available for purchase here.

The Convulsionaries
Sat., July 25th
Doors: 7 p.m., Show: 8 p.m.
Price: $7
All ages

For something a little calmer, check out The Convulsionaires with Stabby Unicorn, Plastic Caves, and Jam Stain on Sat., July 25. These four punk bands still rock the stage, but aren't quite as heavy duty as Friday's concert. According to their Facebook page, The Convulsionaires play 1970's style proto-punk/glitter-glam. Stabby Unicorn consists of friends Eric, Rhiannon, and Daisy playing chill punk music. Plastic Caves describes themselves as Reno dungeon masters getting moody. One can only assume that's a reference to Dungeons and Dragons and should plan to enjoy the music accordingly. Hailing from North Hollywood, JamStain is a cross between funk and psychedelic. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $7. Tickets are available for purchase here.

AWOLNATION
Thurs., July 30th
Doors: 7 p.m., Show: 8 p.m.
Price: $25-$100
All ages

Wrap up July with AWOLNATION with Family of the Year and K Flay on Thurs., July 30. Pop band AWOLNATION released their most recent album, Run, back in March and have been touring ever since. They'll be doing a special meet and greet, which includes one general admission ticket, early entry into the venue, copy of their new album, and more. Country/indie rock band Family of the Year are best known for their international hit song, Hero, which has been a top 10 hit in Austria, Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland. K Flay got into rap music after a conversation with a friend about how sexist and and formulaic most rap music was — she felt she could do a better job. Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $25 for general admission and $100 for the meet and greet package with AWOLNATION. Tickets are available for purchase here.
