Monday To-Do: Scream the Prayer

  • Norma Jean headlines this year's Scream the Prayer tour.

SCREAM THE PRAYER
3:30 p.m., Revolution. $18-$22.

Update: This show was originally booked at Riverfront Amphitheater, but will now take place at Revolution, 300 President Clinton Ave.

Much like capitalism, Christianity has a tendency to assimilate subcultures that once would have been considered completely antithetical to its core values.

Take heavy metal, punk rock and hardcore. All of these genres were once seen as inherently opposed to religion of nearly any type, but now there are enormous Christian metal, punk and hardcore scenes. This is really nothing new, but it continues to amaze those of us who grew up in strict conservative Christian environments that would have never countenanced such music, even if its message was in line with what was being emitted from the pulpit.

So if scream-y, metal-ly Christian hardcore is your bag, this annual extravaganza is not to be missed. This year's Scream the Prayer tour includes: Norma Jean, Sleeping Giant, The Chariot, War of Ages, Close Your Eyes, I The Breather, The Great Commission, As Hell Retreats and Sovereign Strength.
