And it doesn't just extend to the '70s and '80s. We seem to dig our share from later decades too. Take industrial/nu-metal act Powerman 5000, another peaked-in-the-'90s act that's returning to town.
Powerman 5000, whose singer is Rob Zombie’s little brother, will make a July 2 stop at the Rock Box to make sure we get our distorted groove-metal fix.
The band — known for “When Worlds Collide” from the 1999 album Tonight the Stars Revolt! — just might serve up the stiff shot of nostalgia you need to... ahem... power through your week.
$15, 8pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 677-9453, therockboxsa.com.
