Vans Warped Tour

This stalwart summer tour brings together all the scene boys and girls, along with bands that continue to draw out the committed rock devotees. Developed by Kevin Lyman in 1995, Warped is the longest-touring music festival in North America. Now in its 22nd year, the tour has evolved to include bands of several different genres, yet still remains a rock-heavy production. This year’s tour features aggressive heavy metal acts like Atilla and Emmure, pop-punk rockers Bowling for Soup, fast-spitting rappers Watsky and Futuristic, the emo ballads of Hawthorne Heights, and pop artists like Jule Vera and the Plain White T’s. Returning to the stage this year are late ’90s rockers CKY, whose claim to fame include their musical contributions to Bam Margera’s ridiculous videos of dumb dudes doing dumb stuff. Food and beverage vendors and hydration stations will be available throughout the seven-stage festival grounds. Despite the annoying league of eyeliner laden, skinny jeans-clad teenage boys with over-processed hair, this event has basically become an American summer tradition at this point. $39.50-$49.50, 11am Sat, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com. — KR
