The Twins of Evil Tour at 1STBANK Center featuring Rob Zombie (above) and Marilyn Manson is one of this week's five best concerts.

Welcome to Rawktober! The month is getting kicked off with a bang tomorrow night at 1STBANK Center with the Twins of Evil Tour featuring Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, and the rest of the week is shaping up to be pretty stellar, too, with some dubstep and doom metal shows rounding out the week's best concerts. Keep reading to find out which five we think are worth staying up late for this week on a work/school night. And of course, as always, we have all of the best shows listed in our concert calendar if you'd rather choose your own adventure.

A founding member of the Glitch Mob, producer/DJ Kraddy is the mind behind "Android Porn," a track sometimes cited as the glitch-hop anthem. Although he began his career with breakbeats back in 2003, Kraddy's been mixing it up ever since, blending heavy hip-hop influences with dubstep and dancehall, splicing the genres in ways that make it difficult to pinpoint exactly what his sound is -- and that's a good thing, especially with so many dubstep artists dropping near-identical sets. Kraddy definitely stands out from the crowd. His "Next Level" mash-ups -- custom combinations created exclusively for his live sets -- are the stuff of legend in the dubstep world.
