Projekt Rock

Cleveland theater
Linkin Park, which headlines today’s daylong Projekt Revolution concert at Blossom, gets all serious on its latest album, Minutes to Midnight. The record centers on the apocalypse and the reformed rap-rock band’s ties to it. Deep stuff. A severe case of importance also infects tour-mates My Chemical Romance, whose cancer-themed opus, The Black Parade, comes complete with Queen-like guitar fills and five-minute songs about death. Supporting bands Taking Back Sunday, HIM, and Placebo have also grown up over the past few years, abandoning the slash-and-tear approach of past records for more introspective outings. It makes for a surprisingly durable bill -- which still should give fans plenty of opportunities to tear shit up between all the deep thoughts.
