Went to Warped Tour today. I'm getting too old for that sh!t.

Glad we got there extremely early - last time I went was 06 and we sat in traffic for two hours. This time we were there before the gates opened and hit no traffic at all.

The set times we funky, with the two bands my friend wanted to see the most (Andrew WK and Reel Big Fish) being the first two bands to play on the main stage. It was actually pretty cool that way, Andrew WK was all kinds of fun and we were right up against the barricade. I've never been a fan of the whole pandering Party feel good thing he does, but it IS pretty fun in a live setting.

Spent the rest of the day wandering and checking out the few bands that didn't sound like everyone else (you know, whiny pop punk or screamy semi-hardcore). Found a really good Irish punk band called The Mighty Regis, who were hilarious, did a great Pogues cover, and ended with a wild version of Danny Boy.

Walking by SUM41 looking for my friends, I heard them cover Master of Puppets and Paint it Black. The Metallica cover was actually pretty awesome.

Reel Big Fish were fun as hell, Alkaline Trio was disappointingly kind of boring.

Hot as hell day, and I'm probably burnt to a crisp despite using tons of sunblock all day. Good tune up for Lollapalooza, I had forgotten how brutal those all-day outdoor summer festivals can be when it's hot.

I stopped going in 2005 when I passed out from heat stroke and was helped by Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy.... that was a weird afternooon. They just don't make em like they used to and most of the bands are complete garbage and not worth the money.

I still wanna know if Skate and Surf is for real this year. http://www.skateandsurffest.com/ still not an actual site and says that it's coming this year. It would be nice to know if it's real, because I'm breaking out the 04 sweatshirt and going. lol

Yeah, the main reason I went is because a few friends were going and the tickets were very cheap early on ($20 for a holographic collectible ticket and the Warped compilation). I hadn't been to one since '06, I think, before yesterday.

Reel Big Fish and Andrew WK were by far the highlights of the day, and finding that random Irish punk band was fun for me, but it's probably my last Warped unless I can get a similar very cheap deal and someone I'm really into is playing.

I would love to do Skate & Surf if just for the nostalgia. Didn't it used to be in like, April? Or maybe they'll have it in the fall to avoid conflicting with Bamboozle? :noclue:

Next on the docket is Flaming Lips next Tuesday. Can't wait for that one, should be batsh!t insane.

I was this close to going to Monmouth Park and fighting through the Warped Tour crowd to bet on the ponies on Sunday. Around 10:30 a.m., my friends and I just sorta looked at each other and said, "This is a pretty bad idea." We just chilled in my buddy's back yard, swam in his pool and drank frozen cocktails all day long. WAY better move :D

And the last Warped Tour I went to was ... um ... 2002? Maybe earlier. I think it was the year Green Day headlined. Some good memories going to those festivals, most notably discovering The Living End in '98. But, yeah, too much sun and I'm too old for that anymore anyway.

DEFINITELY a better idea. Traffic, from what I'm told, was insane by 11 AM.

The mighty LIGHTNING BOLT tomorrow for free in Brooklyn, first time seeing them since the first album came out. That was a LONG time ago now that I think of it.

Later that night UNIVERSAL ORDER OF ARMAGEDDON one of the best hardcore bands of the 90s are playing what looks like a one off show. UOA and Hammerhead reunions in the span of a few months? That must mean my generations music is finally irrelevant enough to cash in on a new group of kids.

Clutch, October 8 at Convention Hall in Asbury.

That's an unusually large venue for them, but I guess they learned that an overstuffed Starland is no fun. Thank God.

The only other show I've ever seen at Convention Hall was Green Day with The Living End. Friggin awesome show. Looking forward to this one as well.

I would love to see The Living End sometime, they seem like they'd be fun as hell in a live setting.

Next up for me is Spiritualized at Radio City Music Hall (second show that I won tickets for, first being Flaming Lips). I know very little about the band, but they're playing their first album beginning to end with a full orchestra and choir, so it should be interesting.

Then it's Lollapalooza next week. Then my summer concert schedule pretty much comes to a close.

(Oh, and it probably doesn't count as a concert per se, but now I'm apparently seeing Kevin Smith in Red Bank on Monday too.)

If anyone's interested, they're doing a $10 ticket sale at Live Nation today for PNC Arts Center (and Jones Beach)...good number of shows on the list, I just bought a pair for Stone Temple Pilots for $20 total (no fees or anything - amazing, really!).

Just thought some of y'all might like to know.

Concert list

Doesn't look like everything on the list is part of the deal (Green Day and Rush both appear to not count), but a good chunk should be part of it.

Much like last, I wsas also at Terminal 5 this week to see the Smashing Pumpkins and while the show was pretty good, Terminal 5 is a miserable venue! Over packed, no chance of seeing anything unless you brave the pit and chock full of Spin and AMEX ads and commercials...yes, an AMEX commerical before Kill Hannah and a SPIN commercial before the Pumpkins. While I know that's more the promoter than the venue, Terminal 5 is still not a good place to see a show, especially compared to the Bowery Ballroom or even the Wellmont in Montclair. Add to the fact it's 50 miles from a bleedin' subway, and you have a whole heaping of fail. Just needed to vent!

The Spin/Amex ads aren't the norm, that's for the Spin 25th anniversary thing that these concerts are a part of.

Beyond that, I'm with ya. I don't hate Terminal 5, but the location is awful. Also, I don't know if they do this every show, but last night they were funneling everybody out through one exit, past the merch both. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable, and probably dangerous, too.
