Tonight: Cradle of Filth at House of Blues
COF's rabid fan base gets decked to the nines for its live shows, donning all manner of leather and chains to bask in the band's hellish glow with their fellow minions. At this point, they aren't doing anything innovative or pioneering; it did all that in the late '90s. The band can now record at their own leisure, knowing without fail that when it hits the road it will be met with loving arms. Personally, we think COF should sue the creators of Adult Swim's Metalocalypse for copyright infringement.
With Satyricon, 7 p.m. tonight at House of Blues, 1204 Caroline, 888-402-5837 or www.hob.com/houston.
