Free rock concerts to fire up Fremont all summer long

Lit recorded alt-rock hits “Miserable,” “Zip-Lock” and “My Own Worst Enemy.”

The 3rd Street Stage at the Fremont Street Experience will be lit up all summer, with big-name bands playing free shows all season.

This weekend, Memorial Day celebrations will hit a high with a joint concert by Fuel and Lit on Saturday beginning at 9 p.m.

Fuel rocked the early 2000s with hits like “Innocent,” “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” and “Falls on Me,” and the group’s energy is still raw and real.

Lit, which brought us “Miserable,” “Zip-Lock” and “My Own Worst Enemy,” will bring the hype that took them on worldwide tours with the Offspring, No Doubt and Garbage to the Fremont Street stage.

The sound doesn’t stop there for rock fans. Hinder will play a free show on June 8, and on June 29, “JBL presents: Summerland Tour 2013” will bring Everclear, Live, Filter and Sponge to the scene.

But that’s still just the beginning.

In July, Three Days Grace will give an Independence Day show, Sister Hazel and Tonic will perform on the 20th, and Eve 6 will play on the 27th.

Fuel, the band behind the distinctive sound of “Innocent,” “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” and “Falls on Me," has sold more than 3.5 million albums in the U.S.

The summer wraps up with The Presidents of the United States of America on Aug. 3, Third Eye Blind on Aug. 17 and Puddle of Mudd on Aug. 31.

Keeping things rockin’ during the week, alternative rock cover band Nevermind will play Fridays through Wednesdays beginning May 24, through the end of the season.
