Seminal California skate-punk stalwarts The Offspring powers the entire White River Amphitheatre with high-energy anthems from their 28-year history. The band packs its bags and hits the road in support of its new album, Days Go By, noted by Allmusic.com for its "wistful and yearning" aesthetic. The eponymous track shows the band's mellower tack, pairing its signature churning guitars with lyrics that reflect on the temporality of life and the fact that even the World’s Largest Banana Split must one day end. Not neglecting their classics, the foursome delves into such past hits as "You're Gonna Go Far, Kid," which sat atop Billboard's Alternative Songs list for 37 weeks, and "The Kids Aren’t Alright," which humorously details the failed lives of a community's youth.
Pairing sophisticated songwriting with grungy metal, Three Days Grace turns up the volume with dynamic tracks such as "Pain," which starts off with soul-searching lyrics and spare accompaniment before breaking into a blistering chorus that proclaims, "I'd rather feel pain than nothing at all." The band has also been giving fans a taste of their upcoming album, Transit of Venus, performing its first single, "Chalk Outline." Three-piece rockers Chevelle revs audiences’ engines with a stripped-down brand of metal that sets itself apart with songs both crunchy and catchy, ranging from the emotionally vulnerable "Send the Pain Below" to the jaded, anti-exploitation "Face to the Floor." Candlebox and Royal Bliss chime in on the rock ‘n’ roll revelry, adding their unique sounds to the night's mix and pumping up audiences with guitars that double as air compressors.
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
