What a big day it was in Boston! I was so excited to be back home and see the friends that I’ve missed since I’ve been out on the road. I was hoping for a little sunshine, but we wound up with a day full of rain. Fortunately, music fans in Boston will stop at nothing to see the bands they love. I decided to spend my day watching Boston bands. Therefore I Am drew a huge crowd, who all seemed to know every word and weren’t afraid to scream them back at the band. It was so exciting to watch! I was also thrilled, and a little sad to watch Vanna play their last show with frontman, Chris Preece. The amphitheatre was jam packed for their set, so much so that the security guards literally had to use their legs to hold up the barricades. It was a little scary and exciting all at the same time.
I also made sure to catch Big D and the Kids Table play. It was the last day for two of their backup singers and the first day for the two new ones, so I couldn’t miss it.
Virginia Beach, VA
I was so excited about the Virginia Beach show because I got to hang out with my friend Adam. He plays in a band called Story of the Year and just so happened to be staying in a town nearby working on a new record.
Earlier in the day I watched I Set My Friends On Fire. I can’t believe so much noise comes out of just three dudes. I have no idea what the singer/screamer was saying, but the kids in the crowd seemed to know. I also watched Senses Fail play to a packed crowd.
It was pretty busy in Charlotte. The highlight of the day for me was happening backstage. Katie from Keep A Breast was casting the torsos of a few lucky ladies on the Warped Tour, including Sierra from Versa Emerge, Tiffany the Pit Reporter and tattoo artist, Nicole. I even got to participate a little bit by finishing a few edges on the casts. — Erin Caruso
