Rockstar Taste of Chaos Tour Coming to Dallas: Holiday Cheer or Lump of Coal?

Rockstar Energy Drink has just announced that its fifth annual Rockstar Taste of Chaos Tour will come through Dallas on Monday, March 23, at the Palladium Ballroom.

The event will include (among other acts): Thursday, Bring Me The Horizon, Four Year Strong, Pierce the Veil and Cancer Bats.

Hmmmmmmmmm. That line up is a bit wanting, don't you think?

Cancer Bats is pretty cool and all, but Bring Me The Horizon claims to be deathcore and metalcore--but sound to me more like boringcore. And headliner Thursday is about as inventive as its name.

Previous tours have included the likes of Rise Against and Deftones--but nothing that direct and to the point seems to be included this time around.

Ticket prices are reasonable I guess ($20-$25) and one lucky local act can open the proceedings by winning the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands Contest which starts December 22.

I nominate Odis. Any other suggestions? --Darryl Smyers
