Carnival of Madness Tour tonight (July 24)

Posted By on Sat, Jul 24, 2010 at 8:45 AM

The Have Nots What starts off sounding like a Rancid wannabe band rewards the listener with ska-punk that's hummable, danceable, and stage diveable. The Boston blokes are gathered from a couple of popular but now defunct bands that toss ska, reggae and punk rock in and around challenging lyrics that gel into, well, good time music. With Biggy Stardust and His Wretched Hive and Bracing for Impact. $6-$8, The Milestone, www.themilestoneclub.com (Samir Shukla)

Carnival of Madness Tour f/ Shinedown, Chevelle, Puddle of Mudd, Sevendust, 10 Years It's a carnival! Of madness! Shit's gonna get crazy, bro! I got that Joose on ice! If middling, oppressively iron-headed post-grunge dirge-osity is yer thing – and I don't mean like good, Melvins-esque dirge – then you'll be happy as a pig in shit here. Like the kind you might find in a little petting zoo. Right across from the funnel cake stand. Catty-corner to the whack-a-mole ... at the carnival... of madness! $20-$42.50, Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, www.livenation.com (Timothy C. Davis)

Josh Eagle and the Harvest City This Cincinnati folk rock, soul quartet travels to Plaza Midwood for the last of their N.C. stretch of shows with a sound about as fitting of the area as any. Genuine lyrics about home, life and traveling, coupled with crisp but not overly rehearsed or mechanical musicianship, create a wonderful aesthetic. Watching all those guys fit on that tiny stage should be interesting as well. Free, Common Market, www.commonmarketisgood.com (Mike McCray)
