Hawaiian dacenhall-punk-poppers Pepper bring their dance-inducing bubble-hop-rasta to Club Nokia in downtown LA. Along with hybrids Shwayze, who graft turntablism, hip-hop & singer-songwriter styles together, this should be a great show, supported by The Supervillians and Passafire. People who always say “I like all kinds of music. Except country,” will prolly really enjoy this one.
Want in? Tell me what you think the most bizarre musical style-blend could be: klezmer with New Wave? Cumbia with Tuvan throat singing? Opera and hyphy? We’ll pick a couple winners to go rock out at the show.
Yes, the Warped Tour is still happening! After all these years! Year after year, it still happens!
We’ve got tickets to give away to their shows in Pomona (6/20) and Ventura (6.22)! You could see Against Me!, The Aggrolites, Angels & Airwaves, As I Lay Dying (Playing 6/20-7/18), The Bronx, Cobra Starship, Fear (Playing 6/22), Gil Mantera’s Party Dream, Gym Class Heroes, HorrorPops, Katy Perry, Pennywise (Playing 6/20-6/29 and 7/15-8/3), Reel Big Fish, Relient K, Say Anything, Shwayze, Skeet Skeet, Story of the Year and too, too many more. Too many.
But I plan to make it difficult for you, or perhaps at least counterintuitive. Because I’m a pain in the ass.
To win, you have to tell me your LEAST FAVORITE BAND on the bill, and you have to give me a good reason why you hate them with every fiber of your being. Vitriol. Rage. Bile. Ad hominem attacks. Go on. Impress me. Be a hater.
If ya don’t win, and you still want tickets, buy ’em for Pomona (6/20) or Ventura (6.22)!
