Metallica
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. Regardless of how many desperate, failed-attempts at getting back to their true thrash roots, these are the guys that brought us juggernaut-albums like ...And Justice For AllMaster of Puppets and Ride The Lightning; albums that generations of metalheads lost their virginity to, or smoked their first joint to, or got arrested to, or whatever. 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
