The All-American Rejects

A free concert by rockers All-American Rejects (along with a guest stint by the New York Mets), packed Turner Field Saturday for a second-consecutive sold-out home game for the Atlanta Braves over the weekend.

And in between hits at their post-game concert, Rejects frontman Tyson Ritter reminisced about the band’s field trips around Atlanta while recording their second album, “Move Along” here in 2004.

According to Ritter, the hits-laden record was partially inspired by repeat trips to Atlanta’s own Sweetwater Brewery on Ottley Drive.

Outkast’s Andre 3000 and his son Seven, meanwhile, took in Sunday’s 7 to 1 win against the Mets at the stadium. Alas, we’re told the pop star was not wearing his trademark 1970s era Braves cap.
