California rock band Lit takes the stage with songs like their fan-favorite “My Own Worst Enemy.” Popular rock band Hoobastank follows with hits such as “The Reason” and “Crawling in the Dark.” Florida emo band The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus will perform “Face Down” and more. Finally, San Francisco’s Third Eye Blind closes out the evening with major hits, like “Semi-Charmed Life,” “Jumper” and “Never Let You Go.”
On Sunday, Taste Addison finishes the weekend with a collection of legendary songs.
