Though they haven’t released new music since 2021’s Manic, Wage War continues to become a force in the rock world. With an ever-growing fanbase and critical acclaim from Loudwire, Alternative Press, Kerrang!, and even Billboard, the band is quickly becoming one of the most buzzed-about acts in rock and metal. Now, you can catch them at Concord Music Hall with nothing, nowhere. and Spite on Friday, May 5th at 6 PM. Grab tickets here.

Mark, Tom, and Travis, better known as Blink-182, reunited for a second time last year. And after playing two blistering sets at Coachella recently, the buzz around their highly anticipated arena is getting bigger. The pop punk princes will bring the reunion tour to the United Center on Saturday, May 6 and Sunday, May 7 at 7:30 PM with support from Beauty School Dropouts and TURNSTILE. You can still get tickets here.
