Chaos theory

Some of the music industry’s biggest alternative rock bands converge in Reno this weekend as part of the Rockstar Taste of Chaos Tour. The Used headline the tour, which kicks off Feb. 15 in Seattle. The quartet released its CD/DVD Berth earlier this month. Co-headliner 30 Seconds to Mars (pictured) were in the spotlight a lot last year thanks to high-profile appearances on the Vans Warped Tour and Lollapalooza, as well as for the MTV2 Award they won at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. Other bands on the Taste of Chaos tour roster include Senses Fail, Saosin, Chiodos, Aiden and Evaline. The show starts 6 p.m. Feb. 18 at Lawlor Events Center on the north end of the University of Nevada, Reno campus. Tickets are $26.50 and $30. Call 784-4444 or visit
