    Vans Warped Tour spotlight San Antonio: j and the 9s

    If the Vans Warped Tour could be considered the summer festival version of the NCAA basketball tournament, j and the 9s would have been the last artist to get in among the 68-team field.

    Vans Warped Tour spotlight San Antonio: Barb Wire Dolls

    The Sunset Strip metal scene in Southern California may be a shadow of its former 1980s self. But that hardly matters to a punk band whose performance there two years ago tipped off an icon within the metal scene who's no longer with us.
