THE WONDER YEARS
In addition to playing festivals like Atlantic City Beer & Music Fest, Bled Fest, and Back To The Beach, The Wonder Years are going on the Sad Summer Festival tour this year. The rest of the main acts are a little too on the polished pop punk side for us (State Champs, Mayday Parade, The Maine), but any chance to see The Wonder Years’ great live show is worth taking and you can catch this tour in NYC on July 16 at The Rooftop at Pier 17. All TWY dates and tickets here. Wonder Years singer Dan Campbell’s other band Aaron West & the Roaring Twenties also just announced a tour yesterday.

Today he has confirmed the lineup, which is mostly similar to what it was supposed to be last year with Cole headlining plus SZA, Big Sean, Nelly, Teyana Taylor, J.I.D, Rapsody, Saba, and more. 21 Savage and 6LACK are now also playing (and Young Thug, YBN Cordae, and Rich the Kid are no longer playing).
