Wednesday To-Do: Filter



8:30 p.m., Revolution. $15.

After a five-year hiatus, Filter returned earlier this year with “Anthems of the Damned,” an album filled with lyrical musings on contemporary problems (the cover art features an army helmet on a rifle; the lead track is “Soldiers of Misfortune”) and the band's somewhat anthemic take on the doom and gloom of industrial rock. Filter comes to Little Rock fully pedigreed. Richard Patrick, who sings, plays guitar, bass and drums, programs beats and is the group's driving force, was a member of the original touring incarnation of Nine Inch Nails. In 1995, the band's debut album, “Short Bus,” became a surprise hit on the strength of the single “Hey Man, Nice Shot.” Then, after a four-year gap, Filter returned to the charts in 1999 with “Take a Picture.” Since then Patrick's been recording and touring with a new band, Army of Anyone, culled from former members of Stone Temple Pilots and David Lee Roth's touring band. Here's betting that Filter still has enough fans to pack Revolution.
