Flier of the Week: Walk the Rio (and Set to Sea!) at Warped Tour
This isn't the prettiest or the most creative flier that we've ever featured on Flier of the Week; it's really just Photoshopped stock crowd photos and a bunch of logos. What makes this flier important is the information it relays: that Walk the Rio, a dancey/rock electronica band from the city or Orange, were one of four bands to win the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands--meaning they've earned a spot at the final 2009 date of the Vans Warped Tour this Sunday, at the Home Depot Center in Carson.
The competition gives 200 bands in total a chance to play one of the 45 dates of the Warped Tour. While we're stoked for Walk the Rio, we also have to give props to another local winner: Set to Sea, whom we wrote about in Locals Only way back in like, April. Have two Orange County bands selected out of hundreds of LA-area bands that entered is pretty great. More on the competition is here.
