Every show I've been to at Sandstone the past couple of years have pretty much been nostalgia trips. From Warped tour to Weezer, most of these trips have been to hear songs that I knew by heart even though I'm not a huge fan of the bands. I got a full dose of nostalgia tonight at Sandstone.

First up was Pepper. I was less than excited to see them, but they surprised me. Not so much that I'm a fan or anything now, but they were kind of fun to listen to. During their set, it just became all too painfully obvious how out of place I was at this show in my Motorhead shirt. But it was good fun. When Pepper wasn't doing the reggae thing so heavily and put in some rock, it wasn't so bad. 7/10

I realized after their set that just by listening to the radio and growing up in the 90's/early 00's, I knew a lot of songs by The Offspring. I started my listening career as a pop/punk fan, and it doesn't get much better or more enjoyable than an Offspring concert. The guys on stage may look old and their voices may not be able to do exactly what is on record, but they more than make up for it with really fun, really upbeat music. 8.5/10

311 headlined, but I only stayed for about an hour of their set. My sister loves this band so I grew up listening to a lot of them. The sound wasn't fantastic from where I was, but it evened out as time went on. When they were on, they sounded great, but I didn't know most of the songs. Beautiful Disaster was really awesome, as well.

All in all, I'm glad I went. Too many stoners and frat boys, but the music was great.
