A Punk Rock Warped Tour

Its not something I'm going to attend, because I'm all about the dark smoky clubs and 100 people in the audience, but if you want to catch a lot of bands under the hot summer sun, Vans Warped Tour features 3 Germs and an actor doing Germs songs, the original Queen of Noise, Joan Jett and the bonafide Buzzcocks. Punk rock bands I loved during the 70s...and its great to see how they can still draw a crowd 30 years later.

Well, I do want to say that Joan Jett has been pretty damn authentic her whole long career, and if I did do big crowds and sunshine, I'd show up just for her set.
