Puddle of Mud.

4 p.m., Riverfest Amphitheatre. $30.

A 10-year anniversary in radio time isn't insignificant, and Corey and Jay, the morning jocks on 100.3 “The Edge,” known for segments like the “Head Up Your Ass Headlines,” aren't taking it lightly. To help them celebrate, they've assembled a line-up of some of the heaviest names in hard rock for a one-day concert. Straight outta Memphis, Egypt Central kicks the day off with a brand of alt-metal that was good enough for the soundtrack to Stone Cold Steve Austin's “The Condemned.” At 5 p.m., Mississippi's Saving Abel peppers their alt-rock with a hearty supply of Southern flavor. WWE fans know Rev. Theory; their song “Light It Up” was used as the theme for WrestleMania this year. Ozzfest vets Drowning Pool follow at 7:10 p.m. with alt-metal. Hot on the heels of the release of their new album, “The Sound of Madness,” Shinedown brings a fist-pumping brand of sing-a-long hard rock at 8:30 p.m. Closing out the night with an hour-and-a-half set, Puddle of Mud makes up for one of the worst band names in the history of band names with a string of catchy post-grunge that's made it perhaps the most popular modern rock band in the country.
