Catchy rock songs often have a blazing guitar riff, a sing-along chorus, and subliminal messages about getting out of your small town. Get hooked with this GrouponLive deal to see Toadies and Helmet at The Fillmore Charlotte. For $14, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Sunday, July 29, at 8 p.m. (up to a $27 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
When the Toadies burst out of Fort Worth, Texas, with the 1994 classic Rubberneck, the band drew more attention than a fireworks extravaganza. Suitable for headbanging, car chases, or quiet evenings reliving favorite American Gladiators moments, the album yielded six singles, including the epic “Possum Kingdom” and the loud-quiet-loud classic “I Come from the Water.” On tour touting its upcoming album, Play.Rock.Music, the band attacks like a jackal as lead singer Todd Lewis belts out hits with the intensity of a man playing chicken with the devil. Co-headlining cohort Helmet has never tried to be accessible. In albums such as the 1992 breakthrough Meantime, the band creates a sound world where noise forms a coup with hardcore metal, then falls through a trapdoor and joins Mensa. Whipping through time signatures, the New York post-rockers crunch, thrash, and smash through a set featuring fan favorites such as “Unsung” and “In the Meantime,” as well as adventurous tracks from their latest album, Seeing Eye Dog.
