While this year's installment of the Honda Civic Tour felt more like an obscene barrage of advertisements (complete with a pamphlet about credit-building that targeted a very young audience), the bands were chosen wisely, mixing newcomers Kadawatha with veterans New Found Glory and Tegan and Sara, and cake-takers Paramore. Filing in as New Found Glory was finishing, a glimpse at the stage not surprisingly revealed the band pogoing in front of giant, obnoxious pictures of their own faces.
