This was my very first time attending KROQ’s Weenie Roast y Fiesta. I had always wanted to attend, but the lineups were never perfect enough for me—until this year. Even if I was sold with Muse, the addition of Panic! at the Disco, AWOLNATION, Death Cab and X Ambassadors had me really excited. I already knew that Florence and the Machine and All Time Low were great live and the other acts were all bands I wanted to hear more from.
The pre-show was a smaller stage divided into two in order to switch back and forth with little setup time in between. First up was X Ambassadors. I heard these guys when their song, “Renegade” was featured on a few commercials and since then they have been promoted everywhere. They played that track along with “When I Was Free,” “Love Songs Drug Songs,” “Unsteady,” “Naked,” and “Jungle,” which was covered by the Pitch Perfect 2 cast for an NBA playoff promo. They put on a great, but short set. They have an awesome sound, great energy and I am looking forward to the next time I can see them.
Finally something new from one of my favorite underrated bands, It Boys! Since our chat with them two years ago they have signed with Hollywood Waste Records, played Warped Tour and are now on tour in the UK. This video is for their song, “Start The Party” which features David Schmitt from Breathe Carolina. I love Breathe Carolina and the song is just as the title says, it starts the party. The video features the band at an out of control house party with cameos from Jack Barakat of All Time Low and The Sexy Sax Man. I’ve never heard of The Sexy Sax Man until now, but David seemed pretty psyched about him… At least that’s what he was telling the cop who was ready to bust the party. Check out the fun pop-punk video above.

This show was on Halloween and knowing how these guys are I knew were all going to be in for a surprise. Most of the people that attended didn’t wear a costume, but lucky for us most of the bands did. I caught the end of The Summer Set who were all dressed as Disney characters. After their last song, the crowd eagerly awaited All Time Low.
Alex, Jack, Zack and Rian came out dressed as Jack Skellington, Batman (Adam West style), a wrestler (don’t ask me which), and himself, respectively. They jumped right into the music and the constant stage banter between Alex and Jack in between songs definitely added a comical element to their show.
The best part though is Alex’s awesome vocals. Song after song you get lost in his voice until a bra is thrown on stage and you’re kicked back into reality. I also love the energy that they exude. These guys are constantly moving and jumping all over the place with the crowd responding in kind. But let’s face it; these guys have a cult following, so it’s only natural that all of those in attendance are enthusiastic and know every single lyric. Continue Reading
