What the heck have geek rockers Nerf Herder been up to since their last trip to Phoenix in 2002? It's been a full 11 years since the band co-headlined a show with Guttermouth at Club Rio. At the time, the band's third full-length album, American Cheese, had just come out. They went on a two-year hiatus and released another full-length album in 2008, but that was about it.

Last night felt like a flashback to 2002, complete with fans sporting old NOFX and No Use For a Name t-shirts. The crowd still knew all the words, and some fans feebly tried moshing to "Sorry," while others just leaned against the barricade to shout "Sorry I had sex with your sister" along with the band.
