Vans Warped Tour To Reveal Lineup In March

Everyone knows that the Vans Warped Tour is one of the biggest highlights of the summer. Last year, the festival decided to drop their previous style of unveiling its lineup – several bands revealed each week – and instead revealed all of the bands on a set date through a livestream. The festival will continue in this fashion, and will reveal their 2017 lineup on March 22. Tickets will also go on sale the same day. Check out all of the details in a tweet from Warped after the jump!

The Smashing Pumpkins Perform “Drum + Fife” on The Tonight Show

I’ll admit it; my age has put me at a fault here. I’d love to say I’m a fan of The Smashing Pumpkins, but I’m too young to really say so. (Also I’ve never heard them called The Smashing Pumpkins, just Smashing Pumpkins. It’s a bit weird with the “the”. Anyway…) They’re a band whose hits have stuck around, but for he majority of the public that’s all they know. You could play “Today” or “1979” and anyone around my age would nod and say, “oh yeah, I’ve totally heard…

Coachella and Lollapalooza Ban Selfie Sticks

Sorry festival goers, you’re going to have to leave your selfie sticks at home. Whether you have one out of vanity or convenience, it appears they will not be allowed at either Coachella or Lollapalooza.

ALBUM REVIEW: Set It Off ‘Duality’

Set It Off is a band that has only recently become a staple in my music collection. I have always been aware of them because of lead vocalist, Cody Carson. Being a fan of the pop rock genre, especially living in Florida, his name is very well-known. It wasn’t until I found out Set It Off would be headlining the Come Alive Tour this past summer that I decided to get acquainted with them. Set It Off is known for being very theatrical with their musical and vocal arrangements, and…
