Shattered Sun, Arcade Hustlers, Zebras Biting Tigers and Summer Breakdown Fest

Alice metal band Shattered Sun is gearing up for a nationwide fall tour. But before they do, they’ll be at House of Rock on Thursday. Joining them are Rival Made, A Means to an End and Valtiel. Doors are at 9 p.m. Bonding over a love for the classics like Metallica and Queensryche, as well as contemporaries Unearth and Killswitch Engage, the members of Shattered Sun solidified their lineup Zebras Biting Tigersin 2011, infusing modern metal with their Southern influences.

Fresh off their EP-release party, Arcade Hustlers are still hustling to get the attention of your ears. The psychedelic/jazz soul experiment coming to you from South Texas plays Friday at House of Rock. They’ll be joined by Rated R, Corpus Christi’s own Queens of the Stone Age tribute band. Doors are at 9 p.m.

Corpus Christi original/cover band Zebras Biting Tigers is on tap for Saturday at House of Rock. Doors are at 9:30. The three-piece covers a lot of ground — rock, funk, jazz and reggae.

Progressive/ambient metal band The Ansible joins local death metal band Desecrated Remains at Summer Breakdown Fest on Monday at House of Rock. Gnarwolf, Reign and Anti Scene also will be playing. Doors are at 6:30 p.m.
