The Descendents Free Press Summer Fest, Eleanor Tinsley Park June 3, 2012
The Descendents stood out like a sore thumb in comparison to a lot of the other main-stage acts at this year's Summer Fest -- and that's a good thing. On a day that was long with bands playing the big stages that never quite rocked out full-tilt, it was great to see a band hit the stage and go full throttle.
There's nothing wrong with spectacle in rock, but sometimes you need a band with no aesthetics to show up and rock out.
