ATL Concert Roundup — March 11-17

Deftones

THIS WEEK’S BEST BET:

Deftones
w/ Periphery
Sunday, March 17
Tabernacle – 152 Luckie Street NW in Atlanta 30303
SOLD OUT!

I’ll admit it. I never would’ve thought that Deftones would’ve survived this long, much less thrived. But, hot damn, they still sound vicious and adventurous and, most of all, vital. Sure, they’ve traded away some of the raw aggression of their youth for an atmospheric grandeur that’s less immediate and more nuanced, but that’s what great bands do—they adapt and they evolve. Instead of being reactive and impulsive, the band has become meditative, coating the metallic sheen of their guitars in ambient aural textures that carry a greater emotional density. Seemingly now more than ever, there is a dearth of great rock music, but Deftones still carries the torch proudly, crafting stunning anthems bathed in power and contemplative beauty.
