So, here it is, November 22, and I’m JUST NOW getting around to looking at the photos I took at Warped Tour this summer. I went to the Dallas show as I have for the last two years, which I love. I’ve been to Warped in Pomona, Las Cruces, and San Antonio, and Dallas is by far my favorite venue. I think it’s the giant covered stage that does it for me. You’ve got a place to sit and relax in the shade at about 2 pm when you feel like you are going to pass out. That’s Warped for you.
My favorite part of Warped Tour every year is that glorious moment when you decide you’re so hot you no longer care about how your hair or make-up looks, and you let the guys with the water hose spray you down. It’s such a liberating feeling… one that I haven’t been able to partake in the last few years because I’ve had thousands of dollars worth of gear strapped on my back. Oh, well. Warped is always worth every drop of sweat shed. Where else can you find thousands of kids who can decide for one day to get over their differences for the sake of the (very varied) music? It’s special, you know? So here are a few of my favorite shots from Warped Tour 2009… I already can’t wait for next year!
