This Saturday in live music: Nothing, Slipknot with Marilyn Manson, Rev. Billy C. Wirtz and Ronny Elliott

A look at concert highlights for this Sat., July 2.

There are some concerts happening this Sat., July 2. Take a look at the breakdown of highlights below...

Nothing with Wrong Culture, Abuse Nothing might be an indie shoegaze/noise/dream pop band but had enough backbone to sever their contract with Collect Records because of its financial ties to pharmaceutical super villain Martin Shkreli and re-signed to Relapse. Sophomore LP Tired of Tomorrow was produced by the legendary Will Yip and released in May to exhaustive (and well-deserved) critical acclaim. Miami-based Wrong offers the perfect foil to Nothing's disarmingly peaceful sound – hardcore punk aggression with all of the familiar tropes we've come to love (or tolerate) over the years. Culture Abuse’s Bandcamp bio reads “we like to party” and it sounds like it, sort of a degenerate version of a bunch of guys who grew up listening to chill rock and ear-shattering punk at the same time. A precarious line to walk, but they definitely pull it off. Nothing also performs an acoustic in-store at Daddy Kool -- next door to the venue they play later tonight -- at 4 p.m. (Local 662, St. Petersburg) –Brian Roesler

Slipknot / Marilyn Manson with Of Mice & Men Slipknot drummer/percussionist Clown (aka Michael Shawn Crahan) once said he keeps a dead bird in a bag and huffs carrion fumes before starting each show to put him in a proper mindset. Sounds more like something you’d do if you were trying to summon Baphomet, but whatever works, right? We’ve all enjoyed Marilyn Manson’s antics over the years and while he doesn't wear BDSM thongs on stage anymore, and has been experimenting with a more blues-driven sound, he still tears it up on the stage, even engaging and joking around with fans in the crowd. Of Mice & Men has been cultivating a newer sound to set themselves apart from their metalcore contemporaries, and with rumors of a new album swirling, expect to see some new tracks on display. (MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre, Tampa) –BR

Rev. Billy C. Wirtz and Ronny Elliott feat. Steve Connelly and the Foreign Objects Band Two elder statesmen of wry folk-rooted songwriting who’ve made the Tampa Bay area their primary stomping ground – local guitar-strumming alt folksman Elliott and Ocala-based keys banger Wirtz – re-convene for a night of humorous serenades, with support from the new Connelly-fronted roots rock n’ roll project.
