Camden, NJ was a bit of a hectic day. I did a lot of running around in an effort to coordinate another band-on-band video interview. I was worried it was going to be a bust, but I managed to snag Brian and Alex from Therefore I Am and Dave and Omar from Hit The Lights. It was an interesting interview for sure! I’m going to work on some editing and see what I can come up with for all of you. Silly boys.
We had a surprise rainstorm toward the end of the day, which resulted in the last mainstage band playing on the Hurley.com stage. That band was 3OH!3, who spent their first Warped Tour on that very same stage just last year. Man, they’ve really come a long way! A bunch of tour people packed on the stage to hang out and watch the show, and the audience was huge and super enthusiastic. Not a bad way to end the day.

Vanna joined the tour today for the first of three shows. I was excited to see them, as I’m friends with a few of the guys, and they’re all friends with the Therefore I Am kids. Needless to say, it was fun to have a few people to zip around and watch bands with. Also in attendance were a few of the world-famous Teletubbies. Did you know that Teletubbies can throw down in a mosh pit?
Today was a rather nice day. We were at a new venue that Warped hasn’t been to in years past, so I wasn’t sure what to expect in terms of layout and where the Hurley Zone would be and all of the stages, but it was perfectly manageable and the weather was actually quite pleasant. It was also a day full of birthdays. Baptiste, the lovely French boy who works for Keep A Breast turned 21 today. I also discovered that the twins in Monty Are I had a birthday today.
I spent a good part of the day bopping around checking out bands. I made it a point to check out a band I’d never seen before, and decided that band would be the Architects. There’s been a buzz about them, so I thought I should see it with my own eyes and I must say, I really enjoyed the set. Straight up dirty rock and roll. I definitely recommend checking them out.— Erin Caruso
