Ale Fest returns to Tremont in July. Early bird tickets are available right now!

Projekt Revolution Tour 

Featuring Linkin Park, Korn, Snoop Dogg, Ghostface, the Used, and Less Than Jake. Thursday, August 5 (2:30 p.m.), at Blossom.

The eight-hour Projekt Revolution festival is a lot like Lollapalooza once was: a long, eclectic rundown of name-brand, rock-the-house acts, one following the other in rapid succession. Rock, represented by the Used and Less Than Jake, is in the minority here. Two of hip-hop's modern greats, Ghostface and Snoop Dogg, provide the street cred. And still three rap-rock greats grace the bill -- reunited pioneers Downset, braided breakthrough stars Korn, and last-men-standing Linkin Park.

Playing second fiddle here is clearly bugging Korn, and sad-boy singer Jonathan Davis is acting out. Staring down contractual obligations and a ticking clock, Korn is reportedly planning a greatest-hits album featuring some very loud cries for help: covers of Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall" (all three versions in one fell swoop) and Cameo's '80s funk classic "Word Up" -- which is reportedly slated as the leadoff single. Jonathan, step away from the elegant H.R. Giger-designed microphone stand. Don't do it. As Faith No More said at rap-rock's inception, "We care a lot." Or we do when we go back and listen to "Blind."
