A dash of aggro
Trapt’s first album for Warner Bros. sold an amazing 2 million records. The members of this Los Gatos-bred quartet toured their collective asses off and watched their single, “Headstrong,” become one of 2003’s biggest rock anthems. Even though these South Bay transplants can’t spell correctly, they continue to hit the stages in support of their sophomore album, Someone In Control. Of course, Trapt is already a household name in these parts, since the band cut its teeth playing at The Boardwalk. If you like melodic rock replete with tempo changes and a dash of aggro, you can’t go wrong with Trapt. (Spell check, boys?) The band rocks the Empire Events Center, located at 15th and R streets, on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $18.50 in advance and $20 at the door. Also on the bill are Blindside and newcomers Aphasia. All ages are welcome. Visit www.empireeventscenter.com for more info.
