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.

Bossa Nova 28601 Chagrin Boulevard, Woodmere Village 216-591-9559. 4 p.m. to 2 a.m. Monday through Saturday. Kitchen closes at midnight.
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."
