Vandals to get lost for the weekend

Goofy pop-punkers The Vandals have been confirmed to play the NME sponsored Lost Weekend in London on July 12.

The So-Cal foursome will be joining The Hives and Idlewild on the bill on the first of the two-day event.

Other bands playing across the weekend are Pitchshifter, Iggy Pop and Soulfly, with more to be confirmed.

The event will be held at the Docklands Arena and tickets are £22.50 for the day, or £40 for both.

In other Vandals related news, it is expected that the band will perform a short headline tour at a similar time to this. Dates are yet to be confirmed, but they are expected soon.

Paul, otherwise known as Sav, is quite possibly the only member of the Punktastic team to actually have a proper job. But don't hold that against him. He's actually a proper journalist, (a reporter for a daily northern paper) and so adds a bit of credence to the team. Except you wouldn't think that by reading his reviews. Maybe somebody should tell him that it is quality and not quantity that counts! Sav actually ended up working for Punktastic after meeting Nick at university, and the pair bonded over all things punk rock. Another guitarist, he also "writes a lot of songs about relationships, and how mine went wrong." Oh, and he loves the Ataris, if you hadn't already noticed. In his spare time he worships at the church of Kris Roe... Other fave bands include: MxPx, New Found Glory, Blink 182, Weezer, Midtown, Reel Big Fish, The Get Up Kids, Alkaline Trio, NOFX, Green Day, Deftones, Lit and Silverchair to name but a few. Hobbies include, sleeping, drinking, eating fish and supporting Grimsby Town FC. But hey, somebody has to.
