What a show! This was my first Nerf Herder show, the culmination of nearly two decades of being a fan. They did not disappoint. I was able to get all of the band members to autograph a baseball for me too, which was super cool. I tell people that this was the most fun I have ever had at a concert. Corn Mo was the opening act, and he was hilarious.

The opening acts were all great, and it was nice to see Ben Pringle enjoying the show before he had to perform! The venue is okay, but they kicked everyone out as soon as the bands stopped playing. It would have been nice to have some time to hang with the bands, all of whom seemed very interested.

About Nerf Herder
Pioneers of the late 90’s Pop-Punk and Geek Rock movements, Nerf Herder are perhaps best known for their powerful theme to the iconic Joss Whedon TV show, Buffy The Vampire Slayer. Formed in Santa Barbara, California, in 1994, Nerf Herder was signed to major label Arista Records soon after their ironic tribute “Van Halen” stormed the Modern Rock charts in 1996. The video for their follow-up single, “Sorry”, featured Mark Hamill and Miguel Ferrer, and played regularly on MTV. Following years saw the band touring the world multiple times, and releasing a number of albums on various labels, including esteemed indie punk label Fat Wreck Chords and novelty powerhouse Oglio Records.

The current band features founding members Parry Gripp and Steve Sherlock, with newer members Linus Dotson and Ben Pringle. Nerf Herder’s 5th album Rockingham is an explosion of geekiness with songs like “At The Con,” a song written after a performance at Atlanta's DragonCon, “Ghostbusters III,” a lamenting tune about how the sequel will never be released, and “I’m The Droid (You’re Looking For),” which is made entirely of lines from Star Wars and was recorded at Skywalker Ranch. Other standout tracks include "We Opened for Weezer", a song reminiscing Nerf Herder's '97 tour with Weezer, and "The Girl Who Listened to Rush".
