Rock/Pop

Buckcherry, with Avenged Sevenfold, Papa Roach, Saving Abel

When: 2009

Buckcherry didn't start out as the kind of band you'd vote Most Likely to Evolve. But songs like "Broken Glass," which dealt with war in a much more intelligent way than Kid Rock ever will, signaled the L.A. trash-rock outfit's move away from its Aerosmith-wannabe origins. Avenged Sevenfold, meanwhile, is more inclined toward guttural metal, at least until those pop choruses kick in. Rounding out this 6:30 show tonight at the World Arena (3185 Venetucci Blvd., worldarena.com) are Drowning Pool and Rev Theory. Yes, it's four bands for 40 bucks, with a lineup that will appeal to just about anyone who's ever worn a Mtley Cre or Megadeth T-shirt. — Bill Forman
