Misleading tags persist (metalcore, hardcore, emo), but the genre promulgated by the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour has stuck around long enough that we should have an agreeable name by now. It's not that simple: As this bill attests, the youth-directed metal-ish subset is increasingly omnivorous, grabbing dubsteb drops, auto-tuned pop hooks and headbanging holler-alongs that owe as much to Lil Jon as John Brannon. Asking Alexandria headlines with a teetering balance of pop melody and violent breakdowns. I See Stars and Memphis May Fire follow suit. Attila bleed death-metal rumble into LMFAO party-rockin'. The elder act here, As I Lay Dying, sounds comparatively conservative by hewing to good old metalcore templates. The $25 bill starts early, at 5 p.m. —Bryan C. Reed
