LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

N ow that the Lollapalooza Festival is no more than a flannel-encrusted memory, the Vans Warped Tour has filled the void as the biggest and best alternative rock showcase, a make-or-break opportunity for bands and products to come in contact with their target audience.

After almost 40 years and millions of albums, Brian Wilson's inimitable combination of AM radio melodies and sun-warmed harmonies are deeply engrained in popular culture.

The "Theme from Shaft" is a great soundtrack song and a great piece of modern folk-hero mythology, and the new album's rich in cool midsummer singles.

Plus, Austin's Holy Charlie, the Royal Trux go off-road, and more.
