Warped Tour

Once again, Warped Tour rolled through Salt Lake City, and I said to myself, (despite having seen a handful of the bands playing several times before), "ah‚?¶what the hell?" and went. Psyching myself up for upcoming trip to Hellfest in New Jersey, I knew it would be the usual Warped Tour fan fare; a lot of annoying pop punk bands and a lot of annoying-ass people.

I ended up getting there about an hour late, and had to wait in a huge line. I heard My Chemical Romance finishing their set. They played that new song, "I'm not Okay‚?¶I Promise" and it's about an okay song, if anything. They ended with the only song they ever made that I cared about: The one about vampires. While in line, two guys hoped the fence, not realizing that even though the overweight security guard standing 50 feet away from them would never catch them even if hell froze over, she still had a radio on her to inform every other security guard. Dumb Asses.

As we neared the entrance on the Utah State Fairgrounds, Story of the Year was playing their set, and just about everyone in line was going ape shit about missing them. So what? Some gutter punked-out kids were ahead, having to remove all their punk rawker stuff that they had to spend 30 extra minutes putting on before Warped, because, after all, it's all about the image. Wouldn't be rebellious enough if you didn't have your orange Mohawk and studded bracelets. When I finally got it, I ran over to the board to see that Thursday was playing on one of the main stages, so I caught their set. They played a good variety of old and new, closing with ‚??Signals Over the Air' or ‚??Autobiography of a Nation', I forgot which one. And yes, Geoff Rickley did not fail to sway and move about as if her were a woman the entire time. I headed towards the Smart Punk and Uproar stages afterwards hoping to catch Staring Back. I couldn't find their name anywhere, or any time, and I started to worry (Over It was playing at that time too). I walked around the merch booths for a while and bought some stuff, and I also got my Coheed comic book signed by Claudio. Yeah, shut up, I don't want to hear it. Anyone of you elitists would cream your pants if Fat Mike had his own comic or started something called Punk Voter in which everyone thought it would be punk rock to say the president sucks and kiss Fat Mike's ass. Oh‚?¶wait.

Alkaline Trio played next and were good as usual. They played quite a bit of newer material, and did a nice little quick cover of Billy Idol's ‚??White Wedding' towards the end of that one song about vicodin and a bullet or something‚?¶I don't know, I don't really care for that album too much. Bad Religion played not so long afterwards, and so I watched them. Greg Graffin announced that he wasn't wearing sunglasses anymore on Warped so that you could see the emotion in his eyes when he sang ‚??Recipe for Hate', and then dedicated it to the crowd. Bad Religion was good, as always.

I did some more walking around and looking at all the booths and smaller stages, I watched NOFX for a little while. Fat Mike dedicated a song to "Whoever wanted to see George W. Bush get fucked in the ass". Wow, great to know you don't want to come off sounding smart in lieu of being cool with the punk rocker kids and saying things like "fuck him in the ass". I have no problem with ripping on Bush, I'm not a fan, either (don't even start, I don't care for Kerry, I think most politician's are lying bastards) but in a setting with so many young people and being a person in such a "prominent" position, maybe he should be educating people, informing them, and not being so immature about it. This kind of attitude was displayed all day, and it reminds me of when I saw Fahrenheit 9-11 and my sister's friend had one thing to say: "What a jerk Bush is, we should all go to the White House and kick his ass". Yep, great to know you're using your brain and offering a legit solution.

I happened to be walking by as Senses Fail was playing and they stopped in mid-song to tell a couple individuals in the crowd that they were "Fucking idiots" because they were fighting. Speaking of fighting, who the hell came up with the idea of wearing giant, bulky skate shoes with jeans that are two sizes too small, and five inches shorter than they should be? I want to fight those kids because they look ridiculous.

Coheed and Cambria was the next band I saw, I'd never seen them live before, and they had a huge turn out. The majority of their set consisted of songs off the new album, with two from their first. They played tight and Claudio only forgot a couple lines. I really like this band. I don't know why the hell people lump them into the "emo" genre. When I think of "emo" bands, as in, the popular definition-bands like Dashboard Confessional, Silverstein, Rufio, Taking Back Sunday, etc. come to mind, right? So how the hell does anyone consider this band "emo"?! Their lyrics are based around a fictitious story about space and some crazy ass characters. The singer has a high voice, so what? That guy from the Darkness does too and I never hear anyone call them "emo". It might be nerdy, but it's not the same shit as Rufio. Stop calling them that.

Flogging Molly stole the show as far as I'm concerned, as they always put on an energetic show. Everyone from the American Eagle jock to the smelly gutter punk kid, to the 40 year old trailer trash bums were there for Flogging Molly. Dave King in an amazing front man, he told the crowd that even though he is Irish, come election year, we should vote George W. Bush out of office, because having him in office not only effects America, but the entire world, which they went into ‚??Selfish Man'. They played ‚??Rebels of the Sacred Heart', asking if there were "any good Catholics out there" to which King replied, "I've never known a good Catholic!" and towards the end, while singing "Bless me father, for I have sinned‚?¶" He stopped for a second to say "It wouldn't be the first fucking time" to a huge response from the crowd. They mostly played material off Drunken Lullabies and even a song from the new album (due out in the fall). Watch this band if you're at the Warped Tour. Hell, watch them if they're just touring and stop by your town.

It was already rainy and windy by the time we headed over to see Taking Back Sunday. A friend of mine told me they put on a really good show. The band was energetic, telling the crowd to do the "Braveheart thing" by both sides splitting up and running at each other (a concept that it seemed to take the crowd awhile to get), as their vocalist kept trying to hurry things up (it was lighting too, I wouldn't really want to be up their either). Despite the lighting they played a "full" set as far as Warped standards go. They played a song off the new album, ‚??Bonus Mosh Pt. 2" which received little to no response from the crowd. They played some more songs from ‚??Tell All your Friends' but we left before they were done to beat the traffic. All I know is that they played the first song from their first album and ‚??Timberwolves at New Jersey'.

All in all, it was fun. I recommend you go and see Rise Against and Staring Back for me, and Flogging Molly because they put on one hell of a show. And don't forget to leave your cool punk spike bracelets, studded home made Casualties jean jackets and belt buckles at home, because you can't wear them in anyway.

piece of shit review. spend more time at the beginning making fun of punks who aren't like you, then beg us not to clown you for liking coheed(you and claudio both suck). you used the phrase "don't start" after more than one of your pussy comments, as if you didn't know what you were saying was stupid and begging to be made fun of. i think you knew better but then you overcompensated by throwing in a tight pantsed punker comment after multiple references to how dumb the whole fat mike/punkvoter/nofx anti-bush movement is. oh, how original. it's not like we haven't heard all that shit in every single warped review so far. people like you belong in utah, the scrotum of the planet.

I don't have a problem with religion, people can believe as they choose. We all have our crutches in life that get us by, I smoked weed as a crutch, some people fall in love as a crutch, others follow religion... But what REALLY bothers me is the millions of people who have died because of religious wars and the constant references to God by George W. Bush... as if his blood spilling nation is blessed by god...

I also can't stand listening to old skool punk bands like the buzzcocks, crass, DK and so forth... they were pioneer bands of "punk" but I just find the music annoying, I sure like the Clash, Ramones, and Minor Threat, but that's where I draw the line, I strongly dislike Jello Biafra's voice... *shudder*.

i put nofx and against me! on that list because they are good. nofx is obvious, they've been around longer than most of the bands on the list were and they just write great songs, i don't care if they're popular, they're a great band and i've been an against me! fan for a long time, i used to live in florida so i heard about them before most people did and i think they deserve to be grouped with those others. so what if they're still around, both are great bands. that list of ten are the only really good punk bands ever in my opinion, but only the clash and against me! would be on my list of favorite bands. the list, in order, incase anyone was wondering is: the pixies, the clash, violent femmes, jonathan richman, against me!, and modest mouse. i don't think the others are punk, somebody please tell me, please, what is punk again? bye.

I respect Jesus. He wasn't evil. I don't know why so many kids today say "fuck Jesus", and it's one of the things that makes LoC stupid to me. I'd respect their opinion about religion if it was backed up by something other than a fashion.

It's like if people started saying "Fuck Martin Luther King, man! Fuck'em!!!". Jesus wasn't a bad guy, he never looked down upon or condemned anyone. He helped people out.

Sure, there are these shitty fundamentalist churches that damn people to hell left and right, but Jesus didn't stand for that, so these kids shouldn't pretend he did.

"i dont understand why everyone gets so mad at religions.

yes, christians are hypocrites many times. but dont blame it on the words they follow, blame it on the individuals.

would you blame democracy for voting george bush into office? no.

religions in their simplest forms are beautiful things. they teach love, patience and virtue.

as far as the guy who said jesus is a mythological figure. he's not, its documented in many many historical documents he existed. now, his divinity, question that. however, does it matter if he was God or not? i think not, he did anything and everything for someone else. that is a beautiful example for people to follow, any people...yes, even punks (you are people too).

see what i dont understand is you deflect religion and all of these things away because it is corrupt, but you corrupt yourselves (not all of you) by not practicing what you read in chomsky, said, blum and zinn books. you wear, peace love and equality shirts by the anti-racist action, but you (again not all of you) stereotype emo kids as faggoty-and pussy. if crying is how they get their anger and angst out, thats fine. i'd rather see someone crying then throw a brick through a store window, bring a gun into school, beat their significant other around, or even do that illogical testosterone driven "dance" called moshing and slam dancing.

horrible review.

i think the review was written so the reviewer could ramble on about his own beliefs. not very much focus on band energy, crowd energy, the chemistry between the two. he spent 3 or 4 sentences on Bad Religion's set and told us one song they played. BUT gave us the reason you wont be seeing greg with ray-bans on. woo-hoo.

just a little more focus on the show and not the present state of our sub-culture and it would be a very good review.

it must have really sucked even more so than usual warp shows because not only only is the beer expensive, but they only can sell watered down beer in Utah

Not-To-Regret (July 22, 2004)

I agree that the Suicide Machines "MASTERED" the "braveheart" thing last year, but its beacause it suits their style of music. Pop-punk bands like Taking Back Sunday should NOT try to get a "braveheart" started... it made me shudder when I heard that this year...

Kinda a poor review, but its just one guy's opinion for christs sake, leave the man alone, he can listen to whatever music he wants.

Music that stands the test of time is wthat really matters.

Fat Mike was obviously drunk and beligerant... you cannot take him seriously while he's on stage. They have a song called "Idiot Son of An Asshole", do you think that's supposed to be serious?

The coming election is about choosing a lesser of two evils and saving the world.

Someone spent their time writing a review, they knew what they were talking about, so what? For every idiot that bashes the reviewers there is someone who likes to read these.

Coheed cut their set short when they played the Warped stop in Calgary after being pelted with water bottles and other garbage. I guess someone threw a water bottle and it the singer's guitar rack while NOFX was still playing and it sent him into a rage before their set. He scolded the audience about throwing stuff at them and tried to get the person who threw it to admit to it. No one came forward so he called the crowd a bunch of "fuckin pussies". At this point my friends and I had decided that this is not a good way to endear your band to a crowd in your first appearance in that city and thus we made sure to watch the chaos ensue instead of checkin' out the merch. Sure enough, the crowd pelted the prog rockers non stop for the next 20 minutes while the singer kept sarcastically telling them to "bring it on fuckers". It was cool seeing the guitarists trying to pull off solos with one eye on the guitar and one eye on the flying objects which were right on target at a alarmingly high percentage. I always pegged this band to be a bunch of nerdy D&D guys and not the "tough talking" thugs they appeared to be on stage but I guess having 80% of the audience hate you can do that to a band. Perhaps the crowd was angry at this band for trying to pass off a weak Rush imitation in the homeland of Rush. Needless to say, I don't think the band will be making any stops in Calgary anytime soon.

On a side note: Simple Plan had an even worse response last year (especially after playing that weak Bad Religion cover) and believe it or not, they were much more professional than Coheed and never came off like a bunch of sissies. The best part of the Coheed show was when Fat Mike announced that Rush will be on next and then El Hefe launched into a spot on imitation of Geddy Lee for a few lines.

"Also, you got a comic book autographed. you arent the cool fashion punk, you are the cool "im better than everyone else because im a huge fucking loser in life" punk."

So I'm "punk"? I'm the farthest fucking thing from any sort of fashion bullshit trend (emo, goth, punk, hardcore, metal, etc,etc.) So pull your head out of your ass before you talk next time.

Ahh...you can all eat my ass if you don't like my review. It's ym review, I'll write about whatever I want.

"You think emo, faux-core and pop-punk don't have equally stupid fashions? Get fucked you lameass"

Where did I say that? You made that assumption, ass rocket. I think "emo" fashion are just as stupid as "punk" fashions. The moppy girl hair cuts and vintage t shirts that are 4 sizes too small are equally as retarded as orange mohawks and the "I don't shower" look.

And to the guy who gave props to Dave King's "anti-Catholic" comment, Dave King is a Catholic, dip shit. He was being funny when he said it.

'I like how you're such a dickhead you assume anyone who's anti-Bush and listens to punk is a NOFX fan. That's great logic.'

Seriously. I've been saying that for a while now.
Hey, my Gramps really, really dislikes Bush. Fat Mike must've gotten to him too, huh?

You suck at life.

I think we already made a rule that there would be no more reviewing of Warped Tour dates.

If someone sends me money, ill do a warped tour review and it will rule. It will not talk about how kids dress(too easy). It will not talk about how big of an idiot fat mike is(WAY too easy), it will not refer to bands such as TBS, Thursday, Sense Fail, MCR, or any of those bands that fit in that genre.

The review would consist of me talking about the pussy, Bad Religion, Rise Against, how shit faced i got before the show, The Bouncing Souls, the pussy, the barely legal pussy, making fun of the fat chicks that go, making fun of the people that make custom t-shirts, the losers that make signs saying "give me weed", and all of the worth mentioning shit.

Also, you got a comic book autographed. you arent the cool fashion punk, you are the cool "im better than everyone else because im a huge fucking loser in life" punk.

RAWK ON! 0i 0i 0i

what do you expect from someone who would post a review of a yellowcard / something corporate show.

Anonymous (July 20, 2004)

this kid really shouldn't be allowed to do reviews anymore.

Anonymous (July 20, 2004)

What's worse?

1. Knowing that by doing the "Braveheart thing" Taking Back Sunday is ripping off Yellowcard, who last year ripped off Suicide Machines, who ripped off (but at least gave credit to) Sick Of It All. That's a hardcore move. Only hardcore bands should be allowed to do it, not pussy-ass-faggoty-emo fucks.

2. This reviewer starting his review as a jaded punker who decided to bless Warped Tour with his presence, yet creams his jeans when he gets greasy smelly Claudio from C C Music Factory to sign his COMIC BOOK. In the words of Patton Oswalt, "that gayer than eight guys blowing nine guys."

Place your votes now.

For the love of God,

NO MORE WARPED TOUR REVIEWS!

BSD, I have to agree with you on the religion thing, except one score.

In my opinion, i think its great that kids talk about religion, since our culture just makes you shush up with it, and regardless of how you feel, you can't make much more than a stupid little statement, and any intelligent discussion of religion is quickly muted.

Of course, there are always going to be ignorant kids spouting off whatever they read off a website, or a prayer book, or heard from their parents, or friends.

But you can't control that, IN MY OPINION the kids should be able to speak about religion, if only to get it off their chest.

By the way,I find Dogma funny, and I'm catholic.

BSD (July 20, 2004)

The religion debate needs to end now. While punkrock stands for not accepting crappy music and corporate cock rock, for anyone to claim that religion is "evil" is fucked. I'm sure they'd be happier in China, where the government makes all of those little P.C. restrictions and the people are even more miserable than Americans.

Blanket statements such as "Christians aren't terrorists", "It sure wasn't Jews molesting kids", and "Muslims weren't wiping out entire settlements with their army" just make the problem worse by making each side feel obligated to elevate themselves over the others. You think Catholocism is fucked? Well, it's the original form of Christianity. As far as I'm concerned, Baptists, Lutherans, and Fundementalists are the Hurley kids of the Christian scene. All pose.

I'm not religious, either. Never have been. But before you make such a dumb, intollerant remark, educate yourself. In Ireland Catholics are different. To try and repress someone's belief in a higher power doing good for the world is just stupid. I know more people doing good who follow some 2000 year old mythological character than productive people who run around with upside down crosses and 666's on their forheads...

When people start saying "fuck all religion!", you know they've run out of actual things to bitch about.

The reviewer just comes off sounding like an idiot.
Keep it on your LJ if you lack the skills needed to write a well thought out review.

"I'll take the Casualties over THURSDAY any day of this shitfest."

No, no you shouldnt. Sure Thursday is a crappy band and they have no reason to be as popular as they are, but the Casualties suck harder than a 48 year-old crack whore who hasn't had a hit i 10 hours.

Wow!.. a new low in worst review ever..

Not good.. not good at all..

"Christianity is the worst religion in America"
I completely agree. Those damn Christian bastards flying their planes into towers.... oh wait...

BSD (July 20, 2004)

You make fun of fashion punks, yet you like the dumbest of dumbest bands. I'll take the Casualties over THURSDAY any day of this shitfest.

You think emo, faux-core and pop-punk don't have equally stupid fashions? Get fucked you lameass.

BSD (July 20, 2004)

Seriously, this review gets more irritating as I happen to accidently read a little more of it.

I like how you're such a dickhead you assume anyone who's anti-Bush and listens to punk is a NOFX fan. That's great logic.

fistchode (July 20, 2004)

So Taking Back Sunday headlined?

Anonymous (July 20, 2004)

This score if for Dave King's anti-Catholic comment. Christianity is the worst religion in America.

BSD (July 20, 2004)

And you know, "Farenheit 9/11" wasn't just a big "fuck Bush" statement, it was pretty well educated, and of course, slanted. I really don't understand the point of telling overtly political bands to preach the converted. That's more annoying than people hating Bush for no reason. I mean, at least they hate Bush.

Anonymous (July 20, 2004)

piece of shit review. spend more time at the beginning making fun of punks who aren't like you, then beg us not to clown you for liking coheed(you and claudio both suck). you used the phrase "don't start" after more than one of your pussy comments, as if you didn't know what you were saying was stupid and begging to be made fun of. i think you knew better but then you overcompensated by throwing in a tight pantsed punker comment after multiple references to how dumb the whole fat mike/punkvoter/nofx anti-bush movement is. oh, how original. it's not like we haven't heard all that shit in every single warped review so far. people like you belong in utah, the scrotum of the planet.

BSD (July 20, 2004)
