BushIf you happen to be driving by the Pharr Events Center on Tuesday, it might be a good idea to bring a camera and “Take a Picture,” because the entire place could very well be “Swallowed” by hard rock goodness.

But enough word play.

Hitting the stage on Oct. 25 at the Pharr Events Center, located on 281 Eastside Frontage between Nolana and Sioux Road, will be a four-band rock show beginning with Dead Country and… that’s right, you guessed it: Filter, Chevelle and Bush!

The concert is slated to begin at 6:30 p.m.

Filter and Bush rose to prominence during the 1990s, riding the tail end of the grunge phenomenon and popularizing a more eclectic style of alternative.

Filter, who shot to fame in the late ’90s thanks to songs such as “Hey Man Nice Shot” and “Take a Picture,” have recorded five albums since 1995 – the latest, “The Trouble with Angels,” was released last year to critical acclaim.

Also rising to fame in the ’90s was British band Bush, this off the heels of singles such as “Everything Zen,” “Machinehead,” “Glycerine,” the Grammy-nominated “Swallowed,” “Greedy Fly” and “Mouth.”

To date, Bush has recorded and released five albums and sold over 10 million albums in the United States alone.

Chevelle ain’t nothin’ to sneeze at either as they’ve sold three million albums in the US and have released five albums since 1999. Their sixth, “Hats Off to the Bull,” has been slated for a fall 2011 release.
