Across the country, fans of alternative music have gotten a taste of what this year's Warped Tour will be like. The Warped Tour is a traveling concert that usually features over 50 bands, all in one day, and lasts about eight hours on average! Tents will be set up, where you can buy tee shirts, try free samples of CDs or sponsored products, and meet famous musicians, as well as stages where your favorite bands will play! Going to the Warped Tour is a huge bargain, since the tickets are usually around $80, and you can see as many band concerts as you like. That's about 20 concerts for the price of one! Warped Tour is famous for its huge lineup of well-known bands. This previous summer, the tour featured world-famous musicians like Escape The Fate, The Architects, 3oh!3, and more. There is also a skateboarding ramp where concert-goers can watch amazing skaters and several snack bars. This year's lineup includes great bands like Anarbor, Enter Shikari, Mayday Parade, and We The Kings. For the entire list, visit Warped Tour's official website.

Christofer Drew Ingle, AKA NeverShoutNever, has told the world that rock music doesn't have to be violent.

A crowd of millions wait eagerly in a packed stadium. Suddenly, the lights dim. Everybody begins to chant: "Chris-to-fer! Chris-to-fer!", and the tension builds. These millions of people are at a rock concert, but they aren't going to mosh, fight, or see a singer covered in piercings and tattoos. They are here to listen to Christofer Drew's love songs. Drew's music has made the world take a whole new perspective on rock music; it can be positive, too.

Christofer goes by the alias "NeverShoutNever", which is an accurate name, considering that his songs are mostly guitar acoustics about love. Even though his music is alternative rock, the lyrics are positive. This is a rare thing to hear in the genre, but his songs break all barriers. When you're having a crummy day, listen to "Happy"; when your heart is broken, listen to "YourBiggestFan". When I'm sad, listening to a NeverShoutNever song is the same as a hug. The positive lyrics, simple guitar background, and Christofer's amazing voice have all shown the world that rock music isn't always about who can be the toughest.

What do you think about the following topic? See the guide below for instructions on how to submit your thoughts.

The Cub Condo for my main BABV account is large and spacious, and I love to see musicians showing their stuff in Build-A-Bearville. Add that together, and it seems like a great idea to open up a concert venue or theater in my home. However, I want to know if anyone will play music at my venue or attend concerts there. What do you guys think?
