Alien Ant Farm and Lit are Coming To San Antonio This August

So, last month we announced that this blast-from-Hot-Topic’s-past tour aptly named the Gen-X tour was coming through Texas and would be featuring P.O.D., Lit, Buckcherry and Alien Ant Farm.

Unfortunately, for fans of those bands, the tour would not be headed to SA.

However, Lit and Alien Ant Farm just announced that they’ll be headed to Paper Tiger, so not all is lost, bro.

While we’ll admit that Alien Ant Farm’s cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” was probably the best rock cover of an MJ song out there, the band has actually kept pretty true to their groove-heavy alt-rock sound; contrast to to Lit, who have sort of morphed into a alt-country pop outfit.

With these types of bands, you’ll probably be hearing more of the old shit, so don’t worry.
