Black Eyeliner Blitz

Although Jared Leto is now 35 years old, he will forever be associated with high school. Thirteen years ago, Leto starred as the rebel Jordan Catalano on My So-Called Life and was idolized by throngs of teenage girls. Today, he’s still making female high schoolers swoon, only this time as the emotive singer of the angst-ridden rock outfit 30 Seconds to Mars, who are coming to Verizon Wireless Theater today for the Taste of Chaos Tour. The band’s 2002 debut flopped, but 2005’s A Beautiful Lie got a big push last year with the hit single “The Kill.” Leto still has the baby face of the kid who roamed the halls of Liberty High, but now he’s a Hot Topic nightmare come true — his hair is a mess of black and lipstick red, and his face is caked with black eyeliner. He’s still a rebel, but his cause is beyond comprehension. It’s an angst rock spectacle that demands to be seen. The Used, Senses Fail, Saosin, Chiodos, Aiden and Evaline are also on the bill.
