2010 KROQ Weenie Roast, Verizon Amp. 06/05/10

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

If one took a quick glance at the lineup for this year's installment of KROQ's annual early summer bash, the Weenie Roast, you might think you had stepped into a time machine (Hot Tub or Delorean, your choice) and were blasted back to the Mid-Nineties. With Hole, Stone Temple Pilots, Devo and Sublime all at the top of the bill, nostalgia was the name of the game at this Weenie Roast.

The event boasted 15 bands, from hype bands (Passion Pit and Temper Trap) to KROQ staples (Paramore, Deftones and Sublime) and even some indie standouts (Spoon and Silversun Pickups) there was definitely something for everyone to enjoy.
