Mushroomhead Descends Upon The Rock Box with Synth-heavy Rap Metal

Alongside Slipknot and Mudvayne, Mushroomhead ravaged the early aughts with a face-painted take on synth-heavy rap metal. Hearing them again with fresh ears — since it’s been 20 years since I’ve intentionally listened to this band — I can now say they sound like a mix of Korn and Limp Bizkit but not quite as good as either.

If that sounds like your thing, catch them with Hellzapoppin Circus Sideshow Revue, Ventana and Worldwide Panic.

$20, Tue March 5, 8pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., (210) 677-9453,
