On September 6th, a group of artists gathered in L.A. to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Warped Tour, everyone’s favorite annual experiment in the conflicting relationship between black hoodies and hot asphalt parking lots. Warped vets including blink-182, the Aggrolites, Bad Religion, Ice-T, Katy Perry, NOFX, and Rise Against played a show that both raised money for Musicares and feted the enduring tour, known for its uncompromising conditions, rider-free artist living, and confirmed status as a fertile breeding ground for all things trending in rock/emo/punk. The whole thing was filmed for a one-night-only theatrical release this Thursday, September 17th, at movie theaters around the country — but Music Mix readers can get a preview right now. Check out the All-American Rejects doing “Swing, Swing,” and then let us know in the comments: Will you be heading to the multiplex to see the whole film? Hey, it’s the closest Warped Tour will ever come to being air-conditioned…

Time to break out those Chuck Taylors and brace for the sweltering heat. The Warped Tour is coming to a town near you. The 2009 lineup has been announced, and this year’s acts include NOFX, Bad Religion, Flogging Molly, Shooter Jennings, and Anti-Flag. Truthfully, I don’t know which makes me feel older: the fact that the punk-rock, skater-kid bonanza is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, or that I haven’t heard of most of these bands (The Devil Wears Prada? When, oh, when did you become more than a book and a movie?). But the 2009 lineup still has that old-school Warped Tour flair — as do the prices. Tickets will run around $25. As a little preview, here’s Flogging Molly onstage at a past Warped Tour show (WARNING: contains some R-rated language).
So are you psyched for the 2009 Warped Tour, Music Mixers? Or are your moshing days long over?
