By August March
Good news, everybody! This year's Van's Warped Tour is coming through Burque—albeit the festival's given up its lauded positioning at the big amphitheater south of town for the slightly more placid, arcadian and sometimes floaty atmosphere at Balloon Fiesta Park. So, just in case you want to know, the whole schmear goes off on Monday, August 1. The Albuquerque iteration of this ultra-famous yearly event will feature preeminent 'Merican musical acts like Against The Current, Chelsea Grin, Ice Nine Kills, Less Than Jake, Mother Feather, Teenage Bottlerocket and We The Kings. These performances are in addition to a host of other winsome activities designed to lure the youth of the vicinity into the devilish servitude associated with rocanrol music, including a comp ticket for parents (if you're under the age of 18), a hydration station and a totally awesome sponsor and vendor village. Tickets range in price from $37.50-$47.50 and are available through Ticketmaster.
