MUDVAYNE8 p.m., Clear Channel Metroplex, $25 adv., $29 d.o.s.
How's this for chutzpah (or…)? Mudvayne
has a song called “Nothing to Gein,” a lullaby told from the point of view of Wisconsin murderous necrophiliac Ed Gein, who made lampshades from his victims' skin. Of the metal's ever-evolving number of sub-categories, the band could fall under at least four: heavy, alternative, nu- and prog-. Hailing from Peoria, Ill., they've been perforating eardrums with four studio albums, two compilations and two DVDs since emerging onto the scene nearly 13 years ago. In 2006, the group earned a Best Metal Performance Grammy nomination in 2006 for the “Determined” single from the “Lost and Found” album, and it's racked up four RIAA gold certifications and clocked about 3 million in album sales in the U.S. alone. Expect a rowdy crowd at this all-ages show.
