HOOBASTANK
7:30 p.m., the Village. $17 adv., $20 d.o.s.

At least for now, the gears that propel the music-industrial complex lurch along. The record industry may be imploding, but we still have radio (for now) and bands that'll go to some length to get their music played (for now). In our neck of the woods, that translates into 100.3 “The Edge's” “Twisted Christmas Show,” featuring, as these confabs typically do, both bands on the rise and bands whose stars have dimmed. In the latter camp, Cali post-grunge purveyors Hoobastank came of age in the early part of the decade, infusing a strong sense of melody into their angst, with anthemic songs like “Crawling in the Dark” and “Running Away.” Two albums and seven years later, the band comes to town trying to distinguish itself within the post-grunge glut. They're armed with a new single, “My Turn,” and a new menu item to promote — the Hooburrito at Denny's. The other acts, hard rockers Trapt, Aranda and Silverstone, fall into the rising talent category.
