Aranda: They were first on the list and sound issues aside Kev and I agree that they did an okay job and we did miss about half of their set due to some confusion with the timing of the concert but hey what can you do?
Tempered Cast: Probably my least favorite of the opening acts, they didn't really impress me much at all.
Puddle of Mudd: I really enjoyed this set, and screamed my head off singing to all of their songs. Well that is until they started playing cover songs... what? they have plenty of their own music to not have to play covers. They covered AC/DC and Nirvana. There was the walking off the stage to get everyone to yell them back on for their last two songs. I hate that ego boost thing, because I knew they weren't done they were just waiting for everyone to yell to bring them back. We are there, so just play it's what we came for lol. Then in their last song they interjected it with lyrics from summer lovin' and then called it grease lightning... uh... yeah... so anyways overall I liked their set but was less than impressed with the covers. They also changed the tune of their last song as everyone was leaving to the tune of a swing song. It wasn't band but definitely interesting.
