During concerts, a musician’s wild side emerges, such as when a guitarist destroys an amplifier or a singer eats a zebra. Observe untamed talent with this GrouponLive deal to see Filter at State Theatre in St. Petersburg on Saturday, April 21, at 9 p.m. For $14, you get one ticket for general-admission banquet seating (a $20 value, including fees), plus a voucher for a complimentary beverage of beer, wine, or soda (up to an $8 value; up to a $28 total value).
The industrial-rock force of Filter pipes more than 17 years of raw, cathartic hits into the ears of fans, hammering crowds with its signature blend of mechanical mayhem and guitar-driven calamity. From the band's debut album Short Bus, which bore the mid-'90s smash “Hey Man Nice Shot,” through its latest collection of screamable valentines, The Trouble With Angels, lead singer and guitarist Richard Patrick’s urgent voice conveys a football coach’s heartbreak and a guidance counselor’s angst. Helping to fill State Theatre's lush interiors with impenetrable tunes, local rockers From This Fire and Nation Of Wealth entwine bodies in sinewy guitar lines and lobe-stroking sing-alongs.
