Before the rise of heavy metal, people could only achieve ear-piercing catharsis by strapping themselves to church bells or staging Greek tragedies with an all-jackhammer cast. Relish the roar of modern metal with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $19, you get one ticket to the Rock Allegiance Tour, featuring Buckcherry and Papa Roach, on Saturday, September 17, at 5 p.m. at Classic Park in Eastlake (a $39.50 value). Field-level seating is general admission, and the doors open at 4 p.m.
The Rock Allegiance Tour pledges adherence to the forces of electric thunder, harnessing a slew of heavy-hitting acts in a day chock-full of head-banging euphoria. Buckcherry and Papa Roach co-headline a wrecking crew of rock monsters, launching mach-speed riffs about love and annihilation that render pacemakers obsolete and librarians fatigued from shushing. Joining the on-stage armada, Puddle of Mudd buries sentimentality in the soggy soil with merciless post-grunge guitars, and Alien Ant Farm carries 10 times its own weight in alterna-metal. Further engorging eardrums, Red churns out C.S. Lewis–inspired mosh fodder, Crossfade instigates nu-metal trepanation, and Drive A unleashes sonic clauses about heartfelt misanthropy and philandering gravy.
