TANTRIC

9 p.m., Juanita's. $12 adv., $15 d.o.s.,

 

Tantric is a post-grunge band from Louisville, Ky., formed by former members of Days of the New. Tantric's self-titled debut reached platinum status in 2001, largely on the strength of the single “Breakdown,” and extensive touring with Kid Rock, 3 Doors Down and Creed. The second release, “After We Go,” didn't fare as well, but maintained the band's mainstream status with the hit single “Hey Now.” With collapsing record labels, and founding member Matt Taul's imprisonment for a 2007 drug bust, the group's seen its share of uncertainty. But with the long-anticipated release of “Mind Control,” Tantric seems poised to regain its lost momentum, and maybe the addition of an electric violinist will aid in its reinvention. With songs that don't sound over-produced and themes ranging from self-empowerment to nostalgia, the radio-friendly rockers should soon stamp their name back on the map. Oklahoma City rockers Aranda and Atom Smash, from Miami, open the all-ages show. PP.

  • Holiday blend

    take equal parts arena rock and classical, fuse with Christmas carols and serve rock opera style. Then sprinkle with violins, 14 vocalists, two narrators, state-of-the-art pyro and lasers and you've about got the essence of Trans-Siberian Orchestra.
