Lit brought the second date of their “Tried-N-True” tour to North Carolina this past Saturday. As if their name alone wasn’t enough to bring the crowd, they also brought along heavy-hitters Hoobastank, Alien Ant Farm, and Kristopher Roe of The Ataris.

ALIEN ANT FARM
While being best known for their double-platinum hit, “My Own Worst Enemy”, Lit have been consistently rocking it out since 1988. The band just released their seventh full-length album, Tastes Like Gold, this year. Unless you’re talking about hard work, Lit has never been a very serious band. As lead guitarist Jeremy Popoff states about the latest album, “Right out of the gate, we said, ‘We‘re not talking about viruses, politics, or any of that shit. We still have a great time, party, and make music that sounds better loud.‘”
There’s just nothing else like the energy at a Lit show! The previous bands did a great job at getting the crowd ready to go and believe me when I tell you that by around 10pm when Lit finally took the stage, the audience was ready to PARTY! The crowd surfing had begun during Hoobastank and only intensified for Lit as the band took the audience on a nostalgic journey through their discography, while also throwing in some killer tracks off of their most recent release, such as “Mouth Shut” and “Kicked Off The Plane”. This is not a tour that you want to sleep on, especially if you grew up on these bands as I did!
Lit is: AJAY POPOFF (lead vocals), JEREMY POPOFF (lead guitar, vocals), KEVIN BALDES (bass), and TAYLOR CARROLL (drums)
