Here's another interview in my "ask random questions to random bands at Warped" series. In this installment, I talked to a very sweaty and very drunk Chris Wollard of Hot Water Music after they finished their afternoon set. Click READ MORE for the goods, and try to imagine his answers being incredibly slurred. For more information on Hot Water Music, head on over to HWMRock.com.

Chris: I‚??m Wollard, and I play guitar in‚?¶ for Hot Water Music.
S: Who‚??s been your favorite band to watch so far on the tour?
C: Consistently?

S: Who do you recommend to go see?
C: Flogging Molly, Morgan Heritage who already played, fuckin‚?? Bosstones who are playin‚?? right now, Bad Religion, NOFX‚?¶ Thursday already played‚?¶ but I think the side stage is where all the action is, I think.
