Remember Yellowcard? 


Those legacy pop-punk faves will all be in Shakopee for the 2016 Vans Warped Tour, alongside electro partyboys 3OH!3, glam-y metalcore band Falling in Reverse, pop-culture-obsessed pop-punks Four Years Strong, and many other acts your nephew is currently scribbling on his algebra notebook. 

Tickets to the July 24 fest at Canterbury Park run $42; they're now available online and at Golden Valley record shop Down in the Valley. 

The Warped Tour has catered to neon-clad tweens and their unfamiliar/unnerving favorite groups in recent years, but this incarnation seems to incorporate plenty of throwback Warped acts from the '90s and early '00s. Our guess? Probably trying to lure parents of said tweens with some nostalgic goodies. 

The newbies are, of course, well represented. Warped Tour is for the kids, after all. Just get a load of these band names: Chunk! No, Captain Chunk; Saywecanfly; Oceans Ate Alaska; Fat Nick & the Buffet Boys. Holy shit! Nutty stuff. This year also features the brand-new Monster Energy Party Zone, so steer clear of that place.

Of local concern: Rhymesayers-signed rap jester Prof appears on several of the national posters, but apparently won't be able to make his hometown stop. Twin Cities kiddie-rap heroes Koo Koo Kanga Roo kept a sweaty, energized Warped Tour diary for City Pages last year.
