Yellowcard - Nile Theatre - Mesa

For those who came of age after Y2K, the heady days of heart-on-sleeve pop-punk, as defined by bands like Fall Out Boy, Cartel, and Panic! at the Disco, brought radio-ready acts that were as relatable and open-hearted as they were kitschy. Few records encapsulated this timeframe with the honesty of Yellowcard's Ocean Avenue.

The 2003 Capitol release was the record that thrust Yellowcard into the Top 40 spotlight and defined wide-eyed wonder for a generation of teenagers. Now, with a 17-year career under its belt, Yellowcard has gracefully managed the pitfalls that come with being a longstanding pop-rock band.

The band is one of the last vestiges of the Total Request Live generation, when bands peppered the early '00s with the pop punk that's etched into the after-school memories of millennials. When Yellowcard plays Mesa's Nile Theater, it'll bring along some of those early glory days as the band tours behind last year's acoustic treatment of its breakthrough release. -- Kristian C. Libman
