Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodeled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s GrouponLive deal to see the 2011 Carnival of Madness show, featuring Theory of a Deadman and Alter Bridge, at the Time Warner Cable Uptown Amphitheatre Charlotte on Tuesday, September 13, at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. Choose between the following options:

The 2011 Carnival of Madness showcases a quintet of hard-hitting rock bands that punch ears and lift spirits in a long night of rousing performances. Headlining the show, platinum-selling Vancouver quartet Theory of a Deadman exhorts raucous anthems such as "Bad Girlfriend" and "Hate My Life," whose wrathful riffage, tongue-through-cheek humor, and cathartic lyrics keep Eeyore from pouting himself to death. Filling the carnival’s roster of head-banging roustabouts, Alter Bridge shreds blocks of euphonic metal over moats of chugging guitars and petulant double-bass kick pedals, and Black Stone Cherry narrates southern Gothic stories with jet-engine guitars forged from Tom Petty’s femur. Concluding the cluster of combustible rock 'n' roll, Adelitas Way scores unflinching tales of perseverance with hardcore and classic influences, and Emphatic unleashes chugging sonnets.
