Keane falls short
The pool of cliché, formulaic
twenty-something rockers has deepened a bit more with Keane's first album,
Hopes and Fears. Though some may hate comparisons to better-known bands,
it seems to be a necessary evil for up-and-coming artists.
Houston gets Warped Friday
To mark the 10-year anniversary of
punk rock's only summer festival, the organizers of the Vans Warped Tour
have brought back the usual strong lineup of headliners including Bad Religion,
Alkaline Trio and Flogging Molly. But don't spend all your time watching
those bands, because there is plenty to check out on the side stages where
the younger, rising bands will surely please fans this Friday when the
tour kicks off at Reliant Park.
