American Opera Covering Riff Raff Is What Dreams Are Made Of

This just might be the greatest video on the internet today.

American Opera has spent the entirety of his summer on the Vans Warped Tour, and each week along the way he has released an acoustic cover of material from other various Warped Tour artists. We’ve seen AO tackle many scene staples to date, but this week the one and only John Bee has truly outdone himself by providing the world with a stripped down take on Riff Raff’s “Dolce & Gabbana.”

Yes, the Michigan-born singer-songwriter has transformed Riff Raff’s biggest song into an acoustic offering that will have you …

UTG PHOTOS: The Used, Every Time I Die & Marmozets In Cleveland, OH (5/2/15)

Under The Gun sent photographer Kellie Gannon to photograph The Used at House of Blues in Cleveland on May 2.

The Used is not the kind of band whose show you can attend without getting some sort of accidental bruise, mosh pit elbow in the eye, or crowd surfers’ foot in the head. It’s worth every minute and every potential battle wound. The Used has been a band since 2001, but my first opportunity to experience them live wasn’t until Vans Warped Tour 2012 in Cleveland. Highlights from that set included Bert spitting into the crowd, throwing a lit cigarette …

UTG TV: Warped 2014 With Neck Deep

Neck Deep is one of the fastest growing pop-punk bands we’ve seen in a while. Want evidence of that? In our interview with the band, Ben and Fil told us how they’d be super starstruck by one man and one man only: Mark Hoppus of blink-182. Four days later, they announced that they’d be opening for the band at London’s Brixton Academy next month. If you go on the band members’ social networks, you can see a photo of them hanging with Hoppus himself.

This has been a busy year for Neck Deep. The band released their first full-length through …

The Vans Warped Tour hit Long Island last weekend at a new venue but as the same action packed tour we’ve grown to love. Fans of all ages lined the parking lot of Jones Beach anxiously awaiting the long day of music consumption. Of course the lineup featured some huge headlining names such as Mayday Parade, Of Mice and Men, Bayside and Less Than Jake, but there was also a plethora of fantastic bands of all …

The time of the band’s set has yet to be revealed, but if it’s anything like Linkin Park’s appearance earlier this summer, concertgoers can expect a set sometime between four and six o’clock.

Warped Tour is arguably the biggest annual festival around that features popular and up and coming artists in the pop-punk, metalcore, electronic and post hardcore genres. While this news must be very disappointing to fans in that area, …
