Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival
Don't let a silly thing like Wednesday stop you from hearing "Caught in a Mosh," "Raining Blood" or "Ace of Spades" while the rest of your friends are still winding down from the working-day grind. Yes, it's in the middle of the week, but with a lineup featuring Slipknot, Motörhead, Slayer, Anthrax and a host of other evil young acolytes, you can afford to live like a metal maniac on Hump Day. The Mayhem tour's 2012 undercard is nothing to sneeze at either, with High On Fire, As I Lay Dying and The Devil Wears Prada heading up the side stage. Of course this tour would have to hit Houston during one of the hottest parts of the year, right? At least as an evening show, there should be some respite. Nah, this is Texas...who are we kidding?
