California collided with Texas Wednesday night in Lubbock when Trapt and Sons of Texas tore up the stage in a two-pronged aural assault.

Mere hours after stripping down for a four-song acoustic set at the beloved Buddy Holly statue in the Depot District, Trapt unleashed it all on a packed house at Jake's Backroom. The energy in the room was off the charts, and the band fed off it.

Singer Chris Taylor Brown thanked the crowd for letting the band live their dream and provided sage advice on how you shouldn't let anyone stand in your way when it comes to doing what you want to do.

Rocking right before Trapt was Sons of Texas. If you missed the McAllen, Texas band at the FMX Big Purple Party this year and then missed them again here, you might want to kick yourself.

The band hit the stage with a fury, and singer Mark Morales screamed his way through a wild 40-minute set that included current radio song "Baptized in the Rio Grande" off their debut album of the same name.

Sons of Texas is coming up, so keep your ears open for more.
