Who: Stone Temple Pilots

Where: Mainstage

When: 9:40ish

STP was a half hour late, but it was worth it. Scott Weiland’s still got it, still a ridiculous rock star. These guys are ages removed from the flannel-coated 90s but their set inspired nostalgia amongst everyone who accompanied me to the show. On this first reunion tour, they stuck to the hits – material mostly from Purple and Core but that doesn’t mean the set was devoid of innovation, Weiland’s the only singer I’ve seen who uses a bullhorn on top of a microphone for distortion. Pretty dope.
