Price: $40

Of all the metal acts that emerged in the late '80s, Queensryche was the one band whose distinct theatrical flare didn't involve putting on greasepaint and platform shoes. Instead, the members chose to infuse prog-rock nuances into their sound, going so far as to embrace the concept album for 1988's Operation: Mindcrime. While their popularity was significantly snuffed out by the '90s grunge explosion, they soldiered on with 2006's sequel, Operation: Mindcrime II, a surprisingly solid follow-up that received scant attention. The band's latest project is the all-covers album Take Cover, and while the knee-jerk reaction is one of cynicism, the Seattle outfit surprises by not only reeling off Black Sabbath and Queen songs effortlessly, but having its operatic frontman dip into the Jesus Christ Superstar songbook and emerge triumphant. Ex-DokkenfrontmanDon Dokken opens the show. Wednesday, Feb. 26 at the Fillmore (1805 Geary Blvd., San Francisco). 8 p.m., $40.
