I Hope The Shade and Cold Water Play Next Year
Teenage girls were dropping like flies.
I was riveted to the drama in the medical tent as the three oldest bands at yesterday’s Warped Tour- Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Helmet and The Buzzcocks- ran through their thirty minute sets.
Most of the ailing girls were revived with an application of ice and a cool mist. The looks on their faces as they regained consciousness only to discover they were seated next to shirtless oafs with bloody noses was priceless.
It was scorching. And the parking lot at Verizon Amphitheater where all but two of the stages are situated offered no relief from the sun. People were so desperate for shade that they crawled underneath parked trucks.
Now that’s Warped.
