Time to break out those Chuck Taylors and brace for the sweltering heat. The Warped Tour is coming to a town near you. The 2009 lineup has been announced, and this year’s acts include NOFX, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, Shooter Jennings, and Anti-Flag. Truthfully, I don’t know which makes me feel older: the fact that the punk-rock, skater-kid bonanza is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, or that I haven’t heard of most of these bands (The Devil Wears Prada? When, oh, when did you become more than a book and a movie?). But the 2009 lineup still has that old-school Warped Tour flair – as do the prices. Tickets will run around $25. As a little preview, here’s Flogging Molly onstage at a past Warped Tour show (WARNING: contains some R-rated language).
So are you psyched for the 2009 Warped Tour, Music Mixers? Or are your moshing days long over?
