Uproar Festival

When: Tue., Sept. 11, 2 p.m. 2012

Look, it'd be easy to soapbox it and act like this sort of stylized hard rock and nu-metal had long since voided its relevance. But if this traveling festival's headliners—Shinedown, Godsmack, P.O.D., Staind—remind you of 2001's Alternative Rock Chart, well, maybe you should look at this week's. Shinedown's "Unity" clocks in at No. 11; P.O.D. sits at No. 18 with "Lost In Forever (Scream)." Even as the alt-rock mainstream has grown to include the Black Keys, M83 and Gaslight Anthem, there's still a healthy audience for grumbling machismo, reflective power ballads and post-grunge power chords. —Bryan C. Reed

Price: $15-75
