If you grew up on MTV in the ’90s when the music channel actually played videos and Seattle was the rock capital of the world, you have to have a place in your heart for Soundgarden. (If you’re like me, the “Black Hole Sun” video — that Barbie doll in flames on the grill! — will forever be ingrained in your mind.) You’re in luck: The band is going on a reunion tour, so there’s a good chance you’ll hear that hit and many others July 12 when Soundgarden plays the Patriot Center with the Mars Volta. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster and cost $59.50.
