The life of the infamous actor-musician is often a troubled one. Sure, once Marky Mark hung up the briefs for good, he went on to blow minds in films like Boogie Nights and The Departed (brother Donnie of New Kids on the Block fame didn’t do quite as well, with several Saw films among his career highlights), but it bears mentioning that he hasn’t dared go near music since. While we’re at it, let’s not forget Bruce Willis (don’t act like you don’t remember The Return of Bruno). Luckily, Jared Leto has done pretty well for himself on both fronts, sharing the screen with A-listers in movies like Fight Club (Brad Pitt, Ed Norton) and Lord of War (Nicolas Cage) while fronting platinum-selling alt-rock outfit 30 Seconds to Mars. It may have been just over a year that 30STM released their latest album, This Is War, but you can catch them live at Pomona’s Fox Theater on Friday night. Just brace yourself, because the show is sure to be tighter than Jared’s cornrows in Panic Room.
30 Seconds to Mars w/Middle Class Rut at The Fox Theater, 301 S. Garey Ave., Pomona; (877) 283-6976; www.foxpomona.com, www.thirtysecondstomars.com. Fri, Jan. 14. 7PM. Tickets start at $29.50.
