Kevin Lyman recently wrote a piece about this year's Warped Tour Smartpunk stage co-headliners Set Your Goals. You can read it here. If Kevin Lyman's recommendation isn't enough reason to check them out, the AP.net staff also thinks they're pretty good.

As an update to an earlier post regarding the East Coast Indie/Playwork Productions Warped Tour stage, East Coast Indie would like to remind readers that Valencia and Four Year Strong will most likely not be playing on their stage. They are a stage for smaller bands to get exposure and they could not be happier that the aforementioned bands have achieved enough success to play bigger stages. If you have any questions about the stage, please contact East Coast Indie via their myspace.

Message From The BandHi Everyone, Our van is cursed! Due to ongoing problems with our van, we have been forced to drop off the rest of the scheduled Warped Tour dates. We are so sorry about this and if there was anything we could do, we would be out there playing these shows. Sorry for the bad news again but we are getting this sorted out completely this time around. With that bad news, we have some better news. We will be hitting the West Coast with the Spill Canvas in October and this tour will come through the cities we are missing on Warped. In addition,...

Timmy of Underoath talks about their experience this year on Warped Tour.
Update So we have three more shows on warped this year and the experience has been incredible. It's been as encouraging experience both musically and spiritually for me. I had the pleasure of spending a good bit of time in Philly with some great friends who always challenge me and push me to refine my life in many ways. I often forget how blessed I am to have the friends I do. On a more musical note it was a bummer to lose Straylight Run yesterday. Those dudes finished their stint and will be missed.I had the pleasure of getting to know a few of them and I'm grateful for the week and a half I got to see them play....

We have some new Warped Tour pictures from Cleveland and Long Island over at our Buzznet profile. In case you were wondering, we're trying to keep the tent from flying away. We ended up having five inches of rain and hail, and 60 mile per hour winds in a 90 minute period. Also, if you missed them, don't forget to check back at some of the pictures taken by myself and Julia Conny in the past week or so.
Nathan Lint on 08/05/07 - 12:18 PM
Due to the crazy storm all of you endured, you can go to any of the remainder Warped Tour dates for free by taking your ticket stub for the Cleveland stop to the Will Call Booth of the next date you attend.
