The grunge genre got its start in the 1950s when a somnolent Lawrence Welk accidentally filled his famous bubble machine with turpentine, flannel, and his own tears. Pay homage to this American tradition with today’s Groupon to see Soundgarden at the Comcast Center in Mansfield on Sunday, July 10, at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Parking is included in the ticket price, and tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis upon ticket pickup at Will Call.

Soundgarden’s fusion of newborn grunge, hook-centric sludge, and malleable melodies emerges triumphantly on the persevering band's 2011 tour. After taking a 13-year break so that guitarist Kim Thayil could catch up on episodes of Wings and the operatic Chris Cornell could have a fifth lung installed, the mercenaries of Soundgarden have reunited to save the world from their soggy surrogates, pummeling ears as they machete through past and future hits. Like Christmas in July, the détente of Soundgarden grants fans their biggest wish, all without the hassle of elf interaction. Sharing the sweat-seared stage, the ambidextrous juggernaut of Coheed and Cambria stirs chunks of prog, punk, and post-hardcore to satisfy fans of meticulously crafted concept albums and Mensa-level guitar chops.
