Rock on the Range: Day 3 Side Stages – Tech N9ne, Marmozets, Motionless in White, Periphery + More
The last day of Rock on the Range 2015 was filled with notable acts on the main stage but the side stages also featured heavy hitting performances!
Rapper Tech N9ne has made a name for himself in heavy music, collaborating with forces like Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor, as well as Five Finger Death Punch and System of a Down’s Serj Tankian, just to name a few.
As the headliner for the Ernie Ball Stage, he blew the crowd away as he unleashed “Riot Maker” and “Am I a Psycho.” The lyrical mastermind that he is, Tech N9ne also performed favorites “Einstein,” “Dysfunctional” and “Straight Out the Gate.” With 15 studio albums and well over 15 years of music under his belt, Tech N9ne has gained continuous admiration and respect from musicians and fans alike.
Motionless in White hit the stage and performed fan favorites “America,” “Devil’s Night” and their cover of “Mother” by Danzig. A unique moment in the set was when Vampires Everywhere! singer Michael “Vampire” Orlando graced the stage as a guest vocalist during “Reincarnate.”
Vegas rock band Otherwise took the stage earlier in the day for a live performance and received a warm welcome from the crowd of Rangers. Other notable acts that graced the Ernie Ball Stage included Rival Sons, Starset, Art of Dying and the youngsters of Unlocking the Truth.
Over on the Jagermeister Stage Periphery headlined the day and performed fresh tracks “The Scourge,” “Alpha,” “The Bad Thing” and “Graveless” off of their forceful double album Juggernaut: Alpha and Juggernaut: Omega. To experience Periphery live is an overwhelming experience and sensory overload. Whether they’re on a club tour or at a festival, this band is not one to miss!
Whenever Texas metal band Upon a Burning Body take the stage, chaos ensues. Fans crowdsurfed from beginning to end as the band performed favorites “Sin City,” “Texas Blood Money” and their cover of “Turn Down for What.”
With the threat of thunderstorms in the air Marmozets took the stage a bit later than expected but when they did their vigor was undeniable. Their gritty, raucous energy make them one of the most interesting bands out there both in a live setting and musically.
