Kiki and I debated, mid-edit, earlier this summer about who was the longer-running never broken up punk band--Sonic Youth or The Dickies. SY won out. Meanwhile, what The Dickies are up to, according to this mornings batch of press releases:

As a special end to a very successful "Lucky 13” VANS WARPED TOUR®, producer and founder Kevin Lyman has added an extra stage to this summer’s final show on August 25 a the Home Depot Center in Los Angeles. As a tribute to the roots of the tour and to the bands, those who attend the final WARPED show will have the privilege of rocking out to classic punk rock bands at “The Old School Stage.” This stage will feature performances from The Dickies, Circle Jerks, Manic Hispanic, Fear, The Adolescents, Agent Orange, Duane Peters Gunfight and a special rendition of Punk Rock Karaoke featuring various 2007 VANS WARPED TOUR bands. Tickets for this special end-of-tour show may sell out, so be sure to purchase in advance to experience punk rock history in the making.

(emphasis mine).
PS> Why isn't this show at a casino?
