Local hip-hop collective Lotus Tribe will perform this week on the Van’s Warped Tour for the second time, anchoring the alt-rock festival’s Skull Candy/Code of the Cutz Hip Hop Stage on Saturday, July 5 at Verizon Wireless (they’ll also participate in the Dallas show two nights earlier). Those who can’t make it to Selma would be well-advised to catch the all-ages Skull Candy after-party at Blue Bubble Ballroom (9315 N. Broadway) from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Another local act to be featured when Vans Warped comes to South Texas will be Nothing More. The veteran prog-metal band is taking a break from the recording of its third album to make five appearances on the Warped Tour’s Ernie Ball Stage, including the July 5 show.

Finally, the best music option of the weekend not to involve skateboarding will be the killer double bill of SA’s acid-country quartet Snowbyrd and Austin’s similarly consciousness-altering The Summer Wardrobe on Friday, July 4 at Beethoven Maennerchor Halle (422 Pereida St.). The Summer Wardrobe’s visit comes on the heels of a series of 2007 shows backing the legendary Roky Erickson, who dubbed the group Evilhook Wildlife ET.
