The dream of the '90s is alive in Phoenix (kinda).

There may not have been any Beanie Babies, pagers, or butterfly clips (though there were some overalls), but the line up of Everclear, Sugar Ray, The Gin Blossoms, Lit, and Marcy Playground made for some prime '90s nostalgia. The night could have easily been summed up with "Sex and Candy," "My Own Worst Enemy," "Hey Jealousy," "Fly," and "Santa Monica," but the bands played plenty more alternative rock hits with a few new songs peppered in.
