The ten best concerts this weekend: Nov. 23-25

5. ALICE COOPER @ PARAMOUNT THEATRE | FRI, 11/23/12
Known as the Godfather of schock-rock, Alice Cooper has influenced generations of evil performers like Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson with his theatrical performances and controversial antics (see 1969's "chicken incident"). With songs like "I'm Eighteen," "Schools Out" and the dark-rock concept album Billion Dollar Babies, Cooper became frightened parents, and along with KISS and Iggy Pop, he came to epitomize the stateside version of U.K. glam-rock, which was an ultimately darker, more masculine version of what Bowie and Bolan were up to across the pond. Keeping a healthy career throughout the '80s with fan favorites like "Teenage Frankenstein" and "Poison," Cooper is now a revered elder statesman of rock, having guesting on album cuts from Guns N' Roses and Insane Clown Posse.
