The Deftones Play the Fillmore Miami Beach August 25, Opening Act is Baroness!

The Fillmore Miami Beach has been absolutely slaying with its indie-type bookings lately, but here's a new announcement from the venue to make a thinking-man's metal fan weep tears of joy. Sacramento legends Deftones will headline the venue on August 25, the band's first show in South Florida in a couple years, and its first in Miami proper in even longer. 

The band has been unfairly maligned by hipster types for its role in supposedly helping foment the stain that was "nu metal," but hey, can they help it if so many Korn imitators really liked them? In any event, the band's 2000 crossover watershed album, White Pony, still holds up today as a testament to the fact that progressive, heavy music can sometimes boast broad appeal without dumbing down. The latest Deftones disc, Diamond Eyes, is further proof of that -- critics and fans are eating it up, and the disc even penetrated the Billboard Top 20.

If that's still not enough for the snobs, consider this: Savannah sludge-metal titans Baroness open. Imagine how that will sound in en enclosed theater with the Fillmore's killer P.A. 

Tickets go on sale this Saturday, June 26 at 10 a.m., through livenation.com, by phone at 800-745-3000, or at the Fillmore box office.
