-- The Vans Warped Tour has announced another round of acts on this year's bill: The Black Dahlia Murder, Hawthorne Heights, letlive., Anarbor, Wallpaper, Hands Like Houses and Stick To Your Guns.
-- Two local celeb-fronted groups, The Wilson Van (featuring actor Patrick Wilson and TV anchor Mark Wilson) and Pitbull Toddler (featuring local radio honcho Cowhead) are teaming up for a concert Jan. 5 at the Hard Rock Cafe. Admission is a suggested $20 donation; the show benefits Hope for The Warriors. Click here.
-- Congratulations? ... to Tampa death metal icons Morbid Angel, who made The A.V. Club's always entertaining "Least Essential Albums of the Year" list for 2012, thanks to their Illud Divinum Insanus: The Remixes. "There’s nothing about the group’s music that particularly lends itself to an electro or industrial overhaul, but nonetheless, its 2011 album Illud Divinum Insanus has been drum-machined and dubstepped to within an inch of its life."
-- Finally, a truncated version of Ticket Window this week: Jackyl (Jan. 25, State Theatre), Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo (Feb. 9, USF Sun Dome), Caspian (Feb. 18, Local 662). Click here.
