Varient with Product, LAD Theory and Another (members of Fail-yerz and Product)
Darkside, 2106 E. Platte Ave.
Friday, Aug. 12, 7:30 p.m.
$7 , 231-9701

Before becoming Varient, the band formerly known as Blue Sun dabbled in a handful of different genres, switched drummers and bassists several times and played covers as well as originals. As frontwoman Carly Triz explains, they were "all over the place." Varient describe their current sound as "melodic hard rock with a little metal mixed in." Though Triz's crisp vocals occasionally are infused with screams, she doesn't cross into the roaring so prominent in metal and hardcore nowadays. And that's good, because the whole clear-lyrics-backed-with-strong-modern-rock-music thing is really working for them.
