Vans Warped Tour
By: Lynn Lieu
Vans Warped Tour has been making its rounds to parking lots and empty fields throughout the U.S. since 1995 and this year is no different. The tour is set to come through Pomona this weekend with headliners Unwritten Law. The SoCal band recently released its sixth full-length Swan this year. The record marks the group’s first album in six years. Last year Unwritten Law held a cover art contest with three different winners. Each winning cover was used for a different release: advanced copies, Internet copies and retail copies. 3OH!3, Against Me!, Asking Alexandria, Black Veil Brides and even Grieves with Budo are joining this year’s tour. Over the years, Warped Tour has progressed to include not only alternative and punk bands but also a myriad of genres including indie, pop, hip-hop and even bluegrass. So lace up or slip on those Vans and get out to the Fairplex this weekend.
Vans Warped Tour at Pomona Fairplex, 1101 W. McKinley Ave., Pomona, (909) 623-3111; vanswarpedtour.com. Fri, July 1. 11AM. $33.75.
