All American Rejects to Play Free Devilpalooza Show
All American Rejects
It's no "Dirty Little Secret" : Pop-punk band All American Rejects will be performing on ASU campus this Friday, February 10.
Last time I saw All American Rejects live, the were warming up for Blink-182's in 2009, along with Fall Out Boy. The band is back with a brand new album, Kid's in the Street, set for release on March 26, 2012 .
Listening to the the album's first single, "Beekeeper's Daughters," I don't hear much change in the band's trademark pop-rock sound. That's a good thing. It gets annoying when bands don't stick to their original roots, because that's usually what the band is best at, and often what their audience wants to hear. The All American Rejects style is still the same -- only they look just a little older than what most screaming middle school and high school girls remember.
The band is performing as part of Devilpalooza, a yearly concert put on by ASU's Programming and Activities Board. This year All American Rejects will perform with special guest, Wallpaper, and Campus Rail Jam Wakeboarding will be going down as well.
Devilpalooza 2011 was a lot of fun with performances by The Maine, fun. and Motion City Soundtrack. Compared to last year's packed lineup, this year looks a little less exciting, but perhaps 'The Rejects will pack enough energy into their set to measure up to last year's party.
