Audrey Kitching: Warped Tour Memories
As some of you may know I have had my share of Vans Warped Tour experiences over past 7 years! Here is an interview I did that showcases all of my favorite memories! I even attached a gallery of old photos, you may even see yourself in there!
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear “Warped Tour?”
AK: Being a dirty grimy crazy teenager with out a care in the world.
What is your most memorable moment from going to a show?
AK: God I have so many I was on the entire tour for at least 3 years in a row! I guess for me the most memorable moments were the after show BBQS / party’s with all the bands and crew while trying to desperately find showers at every venue! Sometimes it would be 3 days before you could find one and you were melting in 100 degree head everyday.
Suggestions on how to survive a day at The Warped Tour?
AK: WATER & SUNSCREEN! Lots and lots of both every day! Sounds tacky but you can’t enjoy yourself and look fabulous if your sun burned and dehydrated! Also some touch up makeup and sunglasses will make you feel better as well in the mist of the dirt & grime.
A favorite band you’ve seen while at a show?
AK: I honestly don’t really listen to a lot of bands on Warped Tour never really did, I was friends with a lot of them and their hairstylist at the time. I would say somewhere in the mid 2000’s Pretty Girls Make Graves… I used to really be into them when I was younger!
Craziest thing you’ve seen while at the Warped Tour?
AK: People crying, blacking out, being beat up, falling off stage, naked, intoxicated, vomiting… you name it I have seen it.
Any band’s your excited to see this year?
AK: I don’t even know who is playing, I haven’t been in over 3 years!
Are you going to attend this year?
