Smashing Pumpkins, Marilyn Manson at ACL Live. Off-again-on-again frenemies Billy Corgan and Marilyn Manson recreate the dark magic of the mid-1990s with the steeply priced and bleakly themed “End Times Tour.” For Manson’s part, this involves a flurry of costume changes, smoke effects and, reportedly, a flame-spewing Bible. Original drummer Jimmy Chamberlin re-enters the revolving Pumpkins lineup. Early tour reports indicate the band is, in fact, sounding quite Smashing. $99-$149. 8 p.m. 310 W. Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com — D.S.S.

Also: Because there’s still plenty to be bummed about in 2015, Florida band Dikembe proves Emo is alive and well at Holy Mountain. … Spiderhouse hosts a “Juicy Pop Summer Sundae” featuring the ambient electro-grooves of Botany, cool visuals and more. … Nashville indie rockers Lonely Biscuits stop by Stubb’s BBQ.
