Alternative Concert Tickets
Alternative rock has its beginnings in the independent music underground of the 1980s and became very popular in the 1990s. It really covers a broad spectrum of music from underground rock artists or for any music, whether rock or not, that is seen to be descended from punk rock. The New York Times described it in 1989 as "guitar music first of all, with guitars that blast out power chords, pick out chiming riffs, buzz with fuzztone and squeal in feedback."
The majority of alternative bands were originally signed to independent labels. R.E.M was one alternative band that almost immediately became hugely successful. Other great alternative bands include Soundgarden, Nine Inch Nails, They Might Be Giants and Jane's Addiction, to name a few. In the 1990s, Nirvana hit the scene. They really brought a new openness to alternative rock and the genre became more popular. If you are looking for a great alternative concert, we have just the tickets you need.
