Local alternative rock station 1065 “the END” is bringing back their annual Weenie Roast on Sept. 28. For UNC Charlotte students who aren’t ready to say goodbye to summer, this rock festival will be a fitting send-off.

This fall, the lineup is full of a diverse range of acts. From the electronic rock tunes of Awolnation to the headline pop rock act from Thirty Seconds to Mars, there’s a little something for everyone.

Sick Puppies will also be performing this year as one of the supporting acts to the show, fresh off the release of their latest album, “Connect.”

With hits that vary in approach from the upbeat “Maybe” to the more mellow stylings of “Odd One,” it can be hard to pin down the trio’s sound.

“Well, it’s really, really good,” frontman Shim Moore jokes when trying to explain the band’s genre. “Each individual member is influenced by very different people so it’s a very jumbled, unique sound.”
