Warped Tour A-Z With Breesays and Trendysecret
Because we love Warped Tour AND because we love making ridiculous lists together, Christine and I have collaborated to bring you a Warped A-Z. With some bonuses thrown in there (*), because we’re indecisive. And because we amuse ourselves.
A: Agoraphobics (guess we won’t be seeing any of you at Warped)B: Boys (oooh, skinny-jeans central!)C: Condoms – safe sex at the Trojan Tent!D: Diet = pizza and frozen lemonade, huzzah!E: Earplugs. Because the best spot might be by a speaker. Or because that chick behind you just WONT STOP SCREAMING FOR THE BECKETT.F: Fans, be kind to one another. You all cannot date Alex Gaskarth. Or, maybe you can …G: Gaskarth, Alex. Yes, please.H: Heat. Dehydration may occur. Be sure to pass out next to your favorite drummer.I: Interviews! Check your favorite music sites for interviews with bands. Like Buzznet and nyght scene.J: Jack Barakat. Get your Macarena lessons in. It’s gonna be a battle!K: Katy Perry. She kissed a girl, and she liked it. Watch out, you’re next.L: Long lines. Hold your pee as long as possible.M: Money – bring a lot. Bands are bringing a ton of new merch.N: No talking about Blink-182. Tom DeLonge is OVER IT.O: Off (re: your clothes) Gym Class Heroes better sing this.*O: Orgasm. Please keep his to a minimum. Andrew McMahon will still play the piano, no matter how hot it makes you.P: Pennywise. You have to see this band. Christine says so.*P: Paramore Pit – Bree does not want.Q: Quick. The day’s gonna go fast if you’re having fun. Take lots of pics to remember it all.R: Rubik’s Cube. Hey, you need something to do while you wait in line in the morning.S: Sunblock. NO CANCER IS GOOD CANCER!T: The Academy Is … probably going to be shirtless. Get at that.*T: Tips! Tip your merch guys and girls – they don’t make a lot of money.U: Umbrella. If the venue allows, bring an umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh … and hide in the shade between performancesV: Vans. Smaller and local bands will be traveling in vans. (Not the SHOES, silly, the automobiles.) Make them care packages. First aid kits, socks, Band-Aids …W: Water – replenish, replenish, replenish. Even if you’re not thirsty.X: X-rays will be needed if you mosh hardcore.Y: You have fun! This is a day off work, school, etc. to see your favorite bands! Enjoy it!Z: Zzzzzz naptime! Rest the night before! You’re gonna need it!
