1. MEET YOUR DEATH ANGEL
So I may or may not be related to the lead singer of the band headlining Starline on Saturday night. Depends on who you ask in my family. It’s Death Angel, a veteran Bay Area metal band, and Mark Osegueda is its pipes. The show also includes Warbringer and is the four-year anniversary celebration for concert promoter Diehardz Music. It’s a treat for metal heads, as Death Angel’s metal legacy dates back to the early ’80s and is quite legit. And I’m not saying that ’cause the singer might be my kin. [Tix]

As always, “Big Brother” will spy on a group of people living together in a house that has 52 cameras and 95 microphones to record their every move 24 hours a day. Players get voted out each week until one is left to take home the grand prize of $500,000.
“This is me inviting people to my house and playing music for them,” [Jacqueline] Deniston says.
To be fair, they’ve been at this since July and have 13 hours worth to choose from. She started with a giant list if all the bands she loved — the Cure and Joy Division, OMD, Pet Shop Boys — then spent time with Pandora and Last FM sort of rediscovering things.
It starts at 8 p.m. Cover is $5. Plans are for Big Brother to continue monthly.
It’s a big night of starts and finishes on network television.
