If you haven’t made it to Corpus Christi yet in your travels, then this Saturday is when you need to make it to the “Sparkling City By The Sea” for a thorough night of south Texas-made entertainment located at the city’s most infamous venues for underground metal: House Of Rock, Boozerz and Black Monk Tavern.

Since three different venues are hosting popular names in the south Texas / coastal bend scene, RoM – TUJ understands the need for assistance in deciding which bands appeal more to your tastes and which artists that should’ve come with a warning label before finding out the painful way. You have more important things to worry about in life, so allow RoM – TUJ to be your guide for everything metal in Corpus Saturday night. When it’s that time, let the pre-gaming begin and see where the music will take you.

This concludes the Saturday night pre-game insider guide in Corpus Christi July 7. Even though the music videos provided give the audience a taste of what to expect, the live experience is always way more impressive and intense. No matter where the night leads, consider this thought from Hunter S. Thompson:

“Maybe it meant something. Maybe not, in the long run, but no explanation, no mix of words or music or memories can touch that sense of knowing that you were there and alive in that corner of time and the world. Whatever it meant.”
