Warped Tour

August 15, 2007

Verizon Wireless Amphitheater

Better than: Going to school.

The Warped Tour came to Verizon yesterday. Crystal K. Wiebe braved the heat and teenagers to catch some bands and snap some photos. It was just too hot for much else. Fortunately, unlike Meursault in Camus' The Stranger, the heat did not prompt her to kill anyone in an act of soulless nonchalance.

Don't know who was drawing this huge (not) crowd, but evidently all the cool kids were out back, getting baked in the parking lot.

Sunbaked, that is.

To see when your favorite band plays, please consult the giant, inflatable lineup.

To get your favorite band’s autographs, please stand in line for an hour. It’s totally worth it.

Thirsty? Try some $4 water. Also totally worth it.

Sasquatch! Er, the lead singer of Coheed and Cambria.

Helmets are for pussies.

You too, must travel the trail of sweat, my child, to receive the blessing of Aaron Gillespie.

Behold, the blessing of Gillespie, limp-wristed singer for the Almost.

Punked out.

Personal Bias: The last time I saw Coheed and Cambria play at Warped Tour, they sucked. So I slammed 'em at Creemmagazine.com.

Random Detail: I saw a fat kid who had "Show Me Some Tits" scrawled across his man breasts.

By the Way: Last year's line-up was way better.
