Wednesday, June 14

Despite how un-cool it might be to my mustache-donning, romper-wearing hipster friends, I’m actually pretty excited to see Metallica – cuz well, it’s fucking Metallica.

The point is, Metallica were an important part in letting pop-culture, and the rest of the music-world know that metal deserved a seat at the table. With Avenged Sevenfold, 6pm, $55-$155, Alamodome, 100 Montana St (210) 207-3663, alamodome.com — Chris Conde
