Goo Goo Dolls, Collective Soul, Society Tribe
Sun., Sept. 4, 7 p.m. 2016
From the venue:What these two veteran headliners lack in cutting-edge music they make up for with longevity. Buffaloâ€™s Goo Goo Dolls have been churning out once alternative, now slicker pop punk with increasingly heavy crossover appeal since 1987. Georgiaâ€™s Collective Soul has been perfecting melodic grunge-pop since 1993. Both bands attract an aging demographic which makes this pairing logical, both commercially and artistically. The local heroes, led by the irrepressible Ed Roland, tour behind 2015â€™s imaginatively titled if under-heard See What You Started by Continuing, a tough, guitar thumping set as potent as anything in their catalog.
