Kristin Harmel

Book signing organized by Writer’s Block Bookstore with the local author and New York Times bestseller Harmel dedicates copies of his new volume, The forest of missing stars.

Cameron Airborne

MC rising from South Florida. 7 p.m., $ 10. Soundbar, 37 W. Pine St.,

With lineup featuring former heavyweight star members like Exhumed and Possessed, Gruesome creates old-fashioned, blood-soaked metal reminiscent of greats like Death and Autopsy. I wondered if the band would take inspiration from future material from their Florida travels into the pandemic (there was a shocking shortage of infectious disease-related songs during their classic debut. Wilderness). 7 p.m., $ 15. Haven Lounge, 6700 Aloma Ave., Winter Park,

saturday july 10
Rob liefeld

In store and in signature with 1990s comic book titan Liefeld (think Deadpool, Cable, Image Comics, costumes with a really impractical number of covers). We can’t bring ourselves to make a joke on the toes right now because he seems like a really good guy. Noon, free. Coliseum of Comics, 2511 Old Vineland Road, Kissimmee,

Press the push button

A night of mastering Florida post-punk and death-rock thanks to Tampa’s Push Button Press (where are my Idle Rood fans?) Only Theater of Pain look and ring on the lock. 8 p.m., $ 12. Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave.,
