Distant Gig Alerts: Air Guitar Tournament and Vans Warped Tour Lineup

Dallas' own Forever the Sickest Kids are headlining this year's Warped Tour.
Oh my, what a summer it's going to be.

Last year, Pete and I got ferociously booed at US Air Guitar Regional Tournament at the House of Blues because we didn't buy into some of the acts' hype. Oh well. Even so, I must admit (and I think Pete will, too) that this event was a lot more fun than I initially imagined. It was still a dorkfest of the highest order, though.

Oh, and now it's coming back.

This time, the contest will take place at The Loft on June 11. Folks who may want to demonstrate their air guitar skills can go here to sign up. Just make sure your boss isn't looking over your shoulder. Like last year, regional winners will be sent to a yet-to-be-determined city for the US finals--and then that winner will move on to the World Championship in Finland.

Meanwhile, speaking of dorkfests: On July 5th, the behemoth known as the Vans Warped Tour will makes its way to the Superpages.com Center. This year, the lineup features some classic, old school punk, along with the emo-bangs/eyeliner brigade. Bad Religion, Channel 3, DOA, Flipper, NOFX, The Dickies, The Exploited, TSOL, and the UK Subs are just a few of more legendary names on this prolonged bill. And right there with them? Dallas' own Forever the Sickest Kids, for God's sake.
