Skaters: It all started when two people met by chance at a really fancy party. So, really, Skaters is a lot like Romeo and Juliet except without the fighting and the murder-suicide ending. So...not like Romeo and Juliet at all.
Dum Dum Girls: From their extensive list of influences to their choice in producers, this foursome is basically a history of women in rock and pop music. If only they could teach this kind of stuff in schools, right?
The Orwells: If the sample of their live performance we got on The Late Show With David Letterman is any indication, this set will be one to remember, one way or another. We're expecting at least a few pelvic thrusts.
Mineral: Let's play a game of "Animal, Vegetable or Reunion Tour?" That's right! After 14 years of silence these guys are on the road again and they're including Denver's Riot Fest on their tour celebrating not only getting back together, but the band's 20th anniversary. Everybody wins!
3OH!3: We're still not sure what gets these Warped Tour mainstays so excited that they need an exclamation mark THERE. But we're pretty sure we know what gets their audience excited: a mixture of high energy performances and wild wordplay.
Radkey: Riot Fest is one of the few times when you can call a band "a bunch of young punks" and mean it as a compliment. Case in point: these three brothers from Missouri, not even out of their teens, who have been shredding faces all over the place. Go let these kids show you how it's done.
