Review: The Road To Warped Tour, Rock City, by Tim Horwood
THE Road To Warped Tour saw four pop punk bands hit Rock City on Sunday night, including two of America's finest in Less Than Jake and New Found Glory.
First up were California's The Story So Far, a youthful act packing a punch. Being unfamiliar with Man Overboard, many of their tracks seemed to follow the same pattern of sweet acoustic melody, followed by crashing dual-singer punk-harmonies. They were impressive and had enough in them to float high above expectation.
I think we'll see much more of them in the future.
Then it was the turn of the old school. Less Than Jake, their name emblazoned across the back of the stage on a twenty dollar customised bank note, bounced with enthusiasm. They treated fans to an excellent performance of old and new songs, interspersed with humour and banter.

The ska-punk giants were, for me, by far the highlight of the evening, and they whipped the audience into a frenzy.New Found Glory followed after a quick change of the stage backdrop to their own graphics, and launched into songs from their acclaimed 2002 album Sticks and Stones.
During the encore and to a brilliant response from the band's fans, out in force, they performed a series of other hits including a stunning version of Kiss Me.
