For some people, grinding is to be done with a skateboard. Specifically, it refers to sliding along an elevated edge (bench, curb, bench, rail) using the board's trucks instead of the wheels or deck.

A grinder, on the other hand, is a hot submarine sandwich. And many a rapper has boastfully proclaimed the boundlessness of they grind -- that is, their hustle and/or tireless tweeting.

As for grindcore, here's an introduction: a flea-ridden, smells-like-butt primate boldly unfurls its shaggy middle finger as to succinctly and non-verbally communicate, "Fuck you!"

Magrudergrind Unleashes Crude, Sneering Grindcore at Churchill's Pub on April 28

That's exactly the kind of crude, sneering scene that'll be going down at Churchill's Pub on April 28, courtesy of Speedfreek Presents and Washington D.C.'s meanest grind motherfuckers, Magrudergrind.

And as we were saying: This damn dirty ape is a terror. Something like the monkeys that invent weapons in 2001: A Space Odyssey. But the melodramatic grandeur of Strauss's "Also sprach Zarathustra" is replaced by phlegm-throated vocals, faster-than-light tempo, and powerviolent thrashing.

This primitive mammal is not interested in evolution. It just wants to be human enough to make vulgar gestures.

Magrudergrind with Cellgraft, Slashpine, Gorilla Pussy, Super Mutant, presented by Speedfreek Presents. Saturday, April 28. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami. The show starts at 10 p.m. and admission costs $10 at the door. Call 305-757-1807 or visit churchillspub.com.
