Now in its 18th year, the Vans Warped Tour continues to bring hordes of punk, punk-ish and not-remotely punk bands to audiences around the country each summer. This year's Milwaukee stop, one of the tour's final dates of the year, features a slew of veteran acts and big-name draws like Taking Back Sunday, Yellowcard and All Time Low, as well as heavier bands like the screamo outfits Pierce the Veil and Senses Fail and the atmospheric metal group Sleeping With Sirens. Also included in this vast melting pot: mall-punk veterans New Found Glory, chiptune geek-rockers I Fight Dragons, solo pop-rocker Danielle Barbe and rappers G-Eazy and Machine Gun Kelly, and dozens of other acts.


The new owners of the Shops of Grand Avenue have revealed a radical redesign for the mall, which will include a proposed grocery store, an urban marketplace and contemporary office spaces, as well as the potential for a new name. Will the new owners succeed where past owners have failed in turning Grand Avenue around?
