Get Your Nu-metal Fix at Powerman5000's Show at The Rock Box


  • Pavement Entertainment
Yup, it’s another one of these.

If you’ve been living in San Antonio for, I don’t know, at least a year, you know that several times a year, nu-metal bands from the ’90s sneak into the 2-1-0, and we sort of live for it. Whether it’s bands like Chevelle or P.O.D. who’ve made respective appearances at Oysterbake the last couple years, or bands like Deftones, who aren’t necessarily nu-metal but often get grouped with those bands, San Antonio shows up in the hundreds.

This week, Powerman5000 will be making a stop at the Rock Box to make sure we get our distortion-heavy, groove metal fix. Known for their track “When Worlds Collide,” the band got big in the late ’90s when the ripcurl of nu-metal began to course through the radio airwaves.

$15, Thu April 12, 7pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 677-9453,
