Here's one of my favorite bands from this year's Vans Warped Tour at Pomona.  One of the highlights of the day came from a band that didn’t play on any stage.  Between the beer garden and the Spotify Stage, a band from Atlanta called FountNhead had one of THE best performances of the day.  With a booth set up next to the main stage, FountNhead had surprise pop-up performances, racing in a few songs, against time,  before the next band started to play above them.  

The trio, consisting of Jewel, Sainto and Nixon,  echos the political, rap/rock sounds of Rage Against the Machine.    Their song “As A Skunk” is an energized, fighting the machine anthem follwed by fist pumping, hard rockin’ beats peaked the interest of those walking by;  enough so that a sizable crowd stopped to listen. I came back for seconds and thirds, knowing I’ll get to hear more songs each time I stopped by.  Don’t miss these guys!  Fountnhead will be playing the entire Warped Tour.
