The Offspring, A Day to Remember, Bad Religion + More Rock Epicenter 2013

Offspring

In its fifth year, the Epicenter festival turned its attention to old-school punk stalwarts and up-and-coming scenesters. With veterans like the Offspring, Bad Religion and Pennywise joined by A Day to Remember, Pierce the Veil, All Time Low and Falling in Reverse, the day offered good times and rapid-fire rock.

Falling in Reverse led off the action on the main stage, with an energetic set. Frontman Ronnie Radke dedicated the song ‘Alone’ to “everyone who don’t give a f—,” while pacing the stage, twirling his mic in the air.

Baltimore’s pop-punk favorites All Time Low were up next. Guitarist Jack Barakat spent the first song playing in the audience, gathering a crowd of mostly girls who either wanted to touch him or take a selfie with him. His mesmerizing stage performance consisted of nonstop twirls and leaps, making him the visual focus of the band. Vic Fuentes from Pierce the Veil, their tour mates on the Rockstar House Party trek, joined them onstage for ‘A Love Like War.’

Speaking of Pierce the Veil, the San Diego-based band followed with their own set of punk-fueled tunes. Guitar player Tony Perry’s kinetic performance was a crowd pleaser, while frontman Fuentes shined with boyish charm.

It was a joyous occasion for Pennywise, who celebrated the return of original frontman Jim Lindberg while whipping the crowd, especially the lawn section, into a frenzy with favorites such as ‘Bro Hymn.’

Bad Religion performed a blistering set of sing-along punk rock tunes such as ‘21st Century (Digital Boy),’ ‘Los Angeles Is Burning’ and ‘True North,’ ending their set with the radio hit ‘Infected.’

Florida’s A Day to Remember performed a memorable set that included explosions while frontman Jeremy McKinnon’s kinetic performance never slowed. They soared on songs like ‘All I Want,’ ‘All Signs Point to Lauderdale’ and ‘The Downfall of Us All.’

Headliners the Offspring brought the evening to a close on a high note with massive hits like ‘Come Out and Play,’ ‘Gotta Get Away’ and ‘Self Esteem’ while festival goers poured more trash on a bonfire burning in the lawn section.

All in all, the 2013 Epicenter was a memorable day that celebrated the best in old and new school punk.
