Deftones 

8 p.m. Tuesday, April 26. The Pageant, 6161 Delmar Boulevard.

Deftones has two platinum and two gold albums to its name. Still, it's easy to feel sorry for the band, which never deserved its association with the nu-metal movement. Chino Moreno's lazy, vulnerable delivery stood in sharp contrast to the tough-guy posturing of Fred Durst or Korn's Jonathan Davis. And the group's drop-D guitar hooks had more in common with the space/stoner rock of Hum and Far than with Staind's numskull riffs. Luckily, Deftones has outlived the Godsmacks and Crazy Towns, and its 2010 release, Diamond Sky is its most well-received since 2000's landmark White Pony. Justice at last: The success of Sky, feels less like a band cashing in on old times than one capitalizing on a world that finally caught up.
