Sponge, the alternative rock band from Detroit, came through on the Summerland Tour which had a packed bill that included bands Everclear, Lit, and Sugar Ray. The event was a hard blast of 90s nostalgia and included a crowd that sang along so loud it was almost hard to hear the bands.

Sponge formed in 1991 and paved the way for other major players in the 90s alternative rock scene. They released their debut album in 1994 titled “Rotting Pinata” on Sony Records and just recently released their 8th full length album.

Their performance, along with the other bands on the bill, seemed to truly satisfy an audience who cut their teeth on 90s alternative music and allowed them, at least for a moment, to relive some of the most treasured memories of their youth.

The night ended with an incredible performance from Sugar Ray and fans were able to meet the bands and get signatures and photos with their favorite rockers.
