The perfect music to jam out to if you have a lot of pent-up anger and need to let loose. Descended from the punk rock scene of the 1970s, alternative rocks projects a defiant attitude and fuels that angsty fire that flames on in the heart of fans everywhere. This music turns rock music on its head, bringing a little bit of edginess to the classic genre. The whiny, nasally pop-punk voices blare out over a sea of jumping fans, eager to belt out the lyrics of their favorite tune. It’s not uncommon to see a bra or ten tossed up onto the stage for the band members to display prominently on their microphone stands. After all, quite a large number of the audience tends to attend not only for the music but also to catch a glimpse of whichever performer whose poster they have draped all over their bedroom walls. Alternative rock’s typical distorted sound functions as a reminder of how it got its name; as a moniker for underground and lesser-known rockers who still received mainstream recognition. Since then, it has evolved into a massive genre boasting many world-renowned bands with legions of fans. If you want to vent frustration or just rock out, alternative rock tickets are just what you need.
