Warped Tour 2016
Nuuk ‘Em All (Rock Ridge Music). Review by Carl F Gauze.
The 2016 Vans Warped Tour lineup was announced as a live webcast from Winter Park’s Full Sail University. Jen Cray was there to catch the mystery bands on the bill, as much as to learn the lineup.
Four, count ‘em, FOUR great bands rock Orlando and nearly pogo us to death. Reel Big Fish and The Aquabats topped the lively bill that left Carl F Gauze dazed and dizzy.
The lineup isn’t as important as the experience when it comes to the Van’s Warped Tour. Jen Cray smeared on some sunblock and took in the annual summertime tradition when the traveling circus hit Orlando.

Liza Hearon gets down to the basics – sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll – with Charlie Paulson and Kelly Lemieux of Goldfinger. Prison time? KISS? TRL bashing? It’s all fair game in this no-holds-barred interview.
With their light-hearted look at the “Sellout” debate, Reel Big Fish became one of the most popular bands to come out of the ’90s ska-punk revival. Vanessa Bormann talks with Aaron Barrett, Scott Klopfenstine, and Dan Regan about pop music, the band’s “rock star” status, and why they love their substitute guitarist.
Think the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies are all about the swing thing? Not so, says singer Steve Perry. As he tells Jason Feifer, the band is not only more diverse musically than that, they’re also more interested in spreading a message beyond the usual hipster daddy-o-isms.
