Different areas of the alternative rock spectrum were highlighted at Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre, welcomed by 105.7 The Point (KPNT).

Incubus played songs from all aspects of their career, singer Brandon Boyd spectacular and seemingly effortless vocals impressing the nearly sold-out crowd. Although, his interaction with the crowd was slightly timid, his enjoyment of performing was apparent. Fans enthusiastically joined in, singing along, especially during a powerful rendition of “Pardon Me.”

Deftones performance was as energetic as they have ever been but did not play or mention any new material. Vocalist Chino Moreno had a few small spots where his voice wavered, but the emotional intensity more than made up for those few minor imperfections.

Death From Above 1979 started a few minutes late, but the duo played an intense and energetic set to the early crowd. It seemed many were not familiar with this Canadian band–who reunited in 2011 after a break up five years previous–but they quickly made a favorable impression. The band now has two full-length albums out (2004’s You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine and 2014’sThe Physical World) and drew heavily from each during their set.

Los Angeles-based indie rock band and brothers, The Bots, opened the show. The talented and multi-instrumental brothers–Mikaiah Lei and Anaiah Lei–recorded their first album when they were just 15 and 12 years old (respectively), and have toured extensively as support for many national touring acts and played at a number of festivals in the US and Europe.
