[ALT-RAWK] No one is going to confuse something called the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival for an early ’90s Lollapalooza bill—no matter how many alt-era relics are actually on the bill. But in comparison to the “rock festival” happening a day earlier at the Sleep Country Amphitheater (see Saturday listings), this gathering of the mooks is a downright freak show. Sure, Alice In Chains lost its signature instrument when its original singer made good on all those heroin dirges and OD’d in 2002, and Perry Farrell hasn’t written a truly good song in over 20 years. But the former is still good for a dinosaur-blooz riff here and there, and the latter’s swinging, arty funk rock still rules, no matter how antiquated it gets or how much its members secretly hate one another. And the songs of relative new-jacks Coheed and Cambria are perfectly acceptable pieces of Rush fan fiction, and that’s got to appeal to somebody.
