Schitzophonics (guitarist/singer Pat Beers pictured) opened the show on the main stage -- and obliterated it in typical Schitzophonics fashion.

One of the nicest people we know, and one of the best drummers to boot, the Schitzophonics' Lety Beers is all smiles on camera.

Dude, never wear the band's shirt to their own show. We learned that in "Wayne's World." But you know what? We'll make an exception this one time, 'cause We Are Scientists rule!
