What's hot: Get video tours of the hostel's living room, computer hub, bunk beds, kitchen and more before you decide which hostel is right for you. The videos help the properties come to life — as opposed to seeing only property photos. Some videos also offer local tips and attractions. Keep your eye out for the Wi-Fi logo if that's important to you. What's not: You have to leave the website to book the hostel after you fall in love with the property on the video. But that does give you the opportunity to book it on a website that you may already know, such as Hostels.

Did Bowersox get robbed? Does the iron-fisted, despotic rule of trigger-happy tween girls overly skew "Idol's" results? Put aside these questions for a moment and instead bask in the meta-media explosion that is "American Idols Live! Tour 2010," where all your favorites from last season band together to jockey for the ever-rare brass ring of a post-show career. Ticket sales have been rough around the country, so savor the fact that this L.A. show is still on. Staples Center, 1111 S. Figueroa St., L.A. 7:30 p.m. Fri. $40.50-$76.

It's either a testament to the Warped Tour's longevity or a knock on its creativity that Bad Religion and NOFX, the bands headlining this 15th installment of the youth-skewing summer punk rock road show, could have played at any point in the outing's history. Both groups remain beloved staples of teenage counterculture, but at Friday's Warped kickoff date at the Pomona Fairplex, loyalists in the circle pit in front of the stage might have felt like it was 1999. Or 2004. Or 2008.

A travel tip: On a recent cruise to Alaska, we were offered optional city/area tours in each of the three cities we were to visit. Each tour was about $29. We decided not to purchase those tours and to visit the cities by ourselves. After arriving in each city, we found independent tour companies there to greet the ship. Those independent tour guides offered the same tour at $10-$12.50 per person. MARSHALL FOX Santa Barbara

Looks like Drake and Future have decided to play nice. Earlier this week, reports surfaced that Drake had booted Future from his upcoming arena trek over disparaging remarks the Atlanta rapper made about Drake's latest album during an interview with Billboard. But the two rapper-singers have since buried the hatchet and on Thursday, Future announced that he would indeed appear on Drake's 39-city tour. "I am set to continue as planned with Drake and Miguel on the Would You Like a Tour?

Enrique Bunbury, the Spanish singer-guitarist whose protean image and cryptic lyrics have caused some to view him as an Iberian Bob Dylan, will make three Southern California stops during his fall tour. Bunbury will perform Nov. 17 at Viejas Arena in San Diego, Nov. 19 at the City National Grove of Anaheim and Nov. 20 at the Hollywood Palladium as part of his "Licenciado Cantinas" tour (link in Spanish). That's a major jump up in seating capacity from Bunbury's May 2010 concert at the House of Blues Anaheim.
