7 Artists You Can't Miss At Warped Tour 2017

7 Artists You Can't Miss At Warped Tour 2017

Going to Warped Tour this year? You MUST see these artists.

Warped Tour 2017 features nearly 100 bands from rap to metal to pop to punk. The schedules aren't released until the day of each show and sometimes it's hard to plan which artists to see, as there is always live music happening.

I caught these seven bands at Warped Tour in Atlanta. You'll definitely want to make room in your schedule to see them!

If you don't have tickets for Warped Tour yet, you can get them here. The tour lasts until August 6th.

1. Hands Like Houses

Experimental rock band Hands Like Houses reigns from Canberra, Australia. The rock band's new single, "Drift," came out just before Warped Tour started. Their most recent album hit multiple Billboard charts. They're around for all Warped dates, so you won't want to miss them. Check out more photos of them here.

2. Bad Seed Rising

Hard-rock group Bad Seed Rising has just released their debut album - and all of the members are under 20. They're not your average teens, and you must see them in concert to see why. Unfortunately, they were only on Warped Tour until July 4 - but they're touring with He Is Legend from July 14 until late August, so be sure to see them then. Check out more photos of them here.

3. Jule Vera

Rated one of the "100 Bands You Need To Know In 2015" by Alternative Press, Alabama-based alternative band Jule Vera combine unique melodies and raw, emotional lyrics to create an infectious sound. Check out more photos of them here.

4. Memphis May Fire

Christian metal band Memphis May Fire is no stranger to Warped Tour. They strive to spread hopeful and positive messages through music. They are one of the more popular bands on Warped Tour with over one million dedicated fans on social media - and for a good reason, too. Check out more photos of them here.

5. Sonic Boom Six

Unfortunately, I only caught English band Sonic Boom Six's first song because it got rained out, but it's not too late to see them. They'll be around for the rest of Warped Tour. When I interviewed lead singer Laila K, she talked about the political activism behind their work. If you love music about global issues, Sonic Boom Six is a must-see. Check out more photos of them here.

6. Never Shout Never

If "Trouble" by Never Shout Never wasn't your jam in middle school, you're lying. They stopped playing at Warped Tour on July 7, but you can still catch this iconic band on their Throwback Tour. Check out more photos of them here.

7. The Dukes

I was lucky to interview French indie rock band The Dukes - not only because they were only at Warped Tour for a short time (until July 2), but also because their latest single, "Black Hole Love", made it to one of Billboard's rock charts. Their live shows combine music with drawings and light, so they're a muse see. They'll be touring the U.S. in the fall. Check out more photos of them here.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

My AP Environmental Science Class' Cookie Mining Experiment Shows Why Capitalism Is Destroying The Planet

Who cares about the environment with profits this high?


With the AP exams in May approaching quickly, my AP Environmental Science class has wasted no time in jumping right into labs. To demonstrate the damage to the environment done by strip mining, we were instructed to remove the chocolate chips from cookies.

The experiment in itself was rather simple. We profited from fully or partially extracted chips ($8 for a full piece and $4 for a partial) and lost from buying tools, using time and area and incurring fines.

This might seem simplistic, but it showcased the nature of disastrous fossil fuel companies.

We were fined a $1 per minute we spent mining. It cost $4 per tool we bought (either tweezers or paper clips) and 50 cents for every square centimeter of cookie we mined.

Despite the seemingly overbearing charges compared to the sole way to profit, it was actually really easy to profit.

If we found even a partial chocolate chip per minute, that's $3 profit or utilization elsewhere. Tools were an investment that could be made up each with a partial chip, and clearly we were able to find much, much more than just one partial chip per tool.

Perhaps the most disproportionally easiest thing to get around were the fines. We were liable to be fined for habitat destruction, dangerous mining conditions with faulty tools, clutter, mess and noise level. No one in the class got fined for noise level nor faulty tools, but we got hit with habitat destruction and clutter, both of which added up to a mere $6.

We managed to avoid higher fines by deceiving our teacher by pushing together the broken cookie landscapes and swiping away the majority of our mess before being examined for fining purposes. This was amidst all of our cookies being broken into at least three portions.

After finding many, many chips, despite the costs of mining, we profited over $100. We earned a Franklin for destroying our sugary environment.

We weren't even the worst group.

It was kind of funny the situations other groups simulated to their cookies. We were meant to represent strip mining, but one group decided to represent mountaintop removal. Mountaintop removal is where companies go to extract resources from the tops of mountains via explosions to literally blow the tops off. This group did this by literally pulverizing their cookies to bits and pieces with their fists.

They incurred the maximum fine of $45. They didn't profit $100, however.

They profited over $500 dollars.

In the context of our environmental science class, these situations were anywhere from funny to satisfying. In the context of the real world, however, the consequences are devastating our environment.

Without even mentioning the current trajectory we're on approaching a near irreversible global temperature increase even if we took drastic measures this moment, mining and fracking is literally destroying ecosystems.

We think of earthquakes as creating mass amounts of sudden movement and unholy deep trenches as they fracture our crust. With dangerous mining habits, we do this ourselves.

Bigger companies not even related to mining end up destroying the planet and even hundreds of thousands of lives. ExxonMobil, BP? Still thriving in business after serial oil spills over the course of their operation. Purdue Pharma, the company who has misled the medical community for decades about the effects of OxyContin and its potential for abuse, is still running and ruining multitudes more lives every single day.

Did these companies receive fines? Yes.

But their business model is too profitable to make the fines have just about any effect upon their operation.

In our cookie mining simulation, we found that completely obliterating the landscape was much more profitable than being careful and walking on eggshells around the laws. Large, too-big-to-fail companies have held the future of our planet in their greedy paws and have likewise pulverized our environment, soon enough to be unable to return from.
