I got an e-mail announcing the lineup for the Van's Warped Tour and as I was scrolling through the lineup, I was all like, "Holy crap, our own Larry and His Flask are playing the Warped Tour!"
The hillbilly acoustic rockers will be featured on the entire tour, which runs from late June to mid August across the country and Canada. I was once an annual Warped Tour attendee, but haven't checked it out for a good nine or so years, so a lot of the bands on the lineup are a bit foreign to my punk-starved ears, but it's safe to say that this is one of the biggest steps in this Redmond-based band's career.
If you want to congratulate the guys in person, you can see them tonight at WinterFringe where they'll be playing for free on the street in downtown Bend at 7 p.m. and then up at the Century Center at 9 p.m., along with Mosley Wotta. That show is included in your WinterFest button privileges and buttons will be for sale at the door.
