As a genre, hard rock means different things to different people. For your Midwestern Uncle Pete, Van Halen’s “Panama” might be the epitome of the genre. For your mom, it’s probably Whitesnake or Winger. Los Angeles—based Trapt
, on the other hand, come from the Pantera school, all growling vocals and cranked up, sharp-edged Gibson guitar riffs with plenty of bombastic drumming. But there’s an accessibility around Trapt’s edges, and they scored a hit in 2002 with “Headstrong,” which was featured in multiple video games and used to promote the short-lived television show Redneck Island. See where they’re at now when Trapt play with Venrez, Shotgun Harlot and Our Vinyl Vows on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at the Last Day Saloon. 120 Fifth St., Santa Rosa. 7pm. $15—$18. 707.545.2343.
