I went to Warped this year with pretty low expectations, which is probably part of the reason I had such a good time. First of all, if you've never been to a Warped on Randall's Island, then you're missing out. The dust storms alone make it quite an experience, and this year they were the worst e.


I went to Warped this year with pretty low expectations, which is probably part of the reason I had such a good time.

First of all, if you've never been to a Warped on Randall's Island, then you're missing out. The dust storms alone make it quite an experience, and this year they were the worst ever. I assume it had something to do with the fact that August 13th was the hottest day in New York City since 2001, and goddamn you could tell. I've never seen so many people wearing bandanas and dust masks, it looked like the Old West or some sort of outbreak movie. I've also never seen so many people being carted off on those emergency golf carts, assumedly because of the heat.

Anyway, onto the music (forgive me if there are any inaccuracies about time, as I was kind of delusional from the heat the whole day):

After getting there on time, but spending the obligatory 45 minutes on line waiting to get in, we wandered in just in time to see the end of Reggie And The Full Effect. James seemed to be pretty hammered, but they had a good sound and the crowd was really into it.

The two minutes of Mest I heard was not very good; that's all I'll say about that.

Thrice was better than I expected; they were tight and their sound quailty was among the best of the day. They played a few new songs which sounded good and made me look foward to hearing the new record. The rest of the set was mostly stuff from The Artist In The Ambulance, though they suprisingly did not play "All That's Left," instead opting to end with "Deadbolt," which made me pretty happy.

Motion City Soundtrack came on about 20 minutes late, but put on a hell of a show. The keyboard was slightly too high-pitched and sounded a bit off, but no one seemed to mind. Their stage presence was good and they were able to jump around without any effect on the music, which is more than I can say about most bands. They played material from both of their albums equally, closing with, of course, "The Future Freaks Me Out." I thought they were the fourth best band I saw.

I caught the end of the Transplants set; they sounded okay, not my thing, but they drew a large crowd and people were pretty into it.

Avenged Sevenfold really love "Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas;" they came out to the intro from the movie. I thought they would be awful, especially now that M. Shadows can't scream anymore, but the songs actaully sound better now, in a cheese metal sort of way. The crowd went nuts when they played "Bat Country," and to my suprise, i wound up actually enjoying myself.

At this point I was barely able to walk and went to get my fifth bottle of water.

We got back to the Mike Stage just in time to see Strung Out. This was my first time ever seeing them, and all i can say is GODDAMN. They were absolutely spot-on tight, and played a perfectly mistake-free set, not a single fucked up note anywhere. The crowd was reasonably small for them, which was a damn shame. The kids that were there, however, were more into it than almost any other band I saw. They played mostly newer stuff, which I don't mind at all, but the highlights had to be "Too Close To See," and "The Exhumation Of Virgina Madison," which really got the crowd moving and singing along at the top of our lungs. I can't reccommend seeing them live enough; second best performance of the day.

Again I went to get a bottle of water, and afterwards made the mistake of laying down. I fell asleep for about an hour, which caused me to miss the Dropkick Murphys (which annoyed me) and Story Of The Year (which made me happy). I woke up when some girl poked me in the face and asked me if I was okay; she was pretty cute, so I got up right away. We headed back over to the Mike Stage.

MxPx aren't very well liked on this site, but they do put on a great show. They had a nice sized crowd, and when it started to rain a few minutes into the set a cheer went up; unfortunately it only lasted 10 minutes or so. I was praying for it to fucking pour, and i think everyone else was too. The band played all of the favorites everyone was expecting and a few tunes from their new album. In my opinion, the best songs were "Punk Rock Show" and "Chick Magnet," both of which featured fun singalongs.

I caught a few minutes of Big D And The Kids Table; they sounded great and there weren't may people there, but I guess that's to be expected.

We wandered around with some girls we had met up with during Atreyu's set. Much to my dismay, they didn't sound awful, at least from far away. They had a huge crowd, of course, and everyone jumped up and down when they closed up with "You Give Love A Bad Name." It figures their most fun song is a cover.

I plowed through everyone leaving the Bishop Stage where Atreyu had just played to get back to the Mike Stage just in time to hear the opening chords of "Fox." Millencolin was fucking awesome. They had drawn a pretty big crowd, but at first everyone was kinda standing around, save for a circle pit of skanking. By a few songs in, however, everyone was really into it. Steve Caballero (who I had seen walking around earlier) came out to play bass for one song. I wanna say it was "Bullion," but I really don't remember. They played a great variety of stuff from all their abums. From what I can recall the set list was something like: "Fox," "Cash Or Clash," "Kemp," "Bullion," "Penguins And Polarbears," and "Blackeye." I think O left one or two out, though. They closed with "No Cigar" and it was sick, one of the biggest cirlce pits I'd ever seen. Everyone in the pit just skanking along having a great time while the rest of the crowd jumped around. In my opinion Millencolin simply stole the show, and made the whoe day worthwhile. I can't wait to see them again.

We went to sit back down while My Chemical Romace sucked it up at the Bishop stage. Their crowd was enourmous and people were singing along as they walked by me; I don't understand why everyone likes them so much. Say what you want about the lack of quality music, but damn, along with bands like MCR comes some quality females.

The Offspring probably drew the biggest crowd of the day, though. We were way in the back, almost to one of the side stages and it was packed in front of us. I hate to admit it, as I really don't like them, but they know how to work a crowd. They played everything you would expect and everyone was singing along to the point where you almost couldn't hear the band. Definitely the suprise best perfomance of the day.

We decided we didn't want to leave yet, so we walked over and leaned against the sound booth to see Fall Out Boy. I wanted to hear if they were as bad live as everyone says, and boy did they exceed the hype. First of all, they came out and said "Hello New Jersey;" I screamed that we were in New York and called them assholes; it got a few laughs, but mostly dirty looks from all the jailbait that surrounded us. They then proceeded to play one of the sloppiest sets ever. They continually fucked up their own songs, missed words or lines, and it seemed like they couldn't even play the songs they had written. The singer said they were in New Jersey three more times before he admitted that someone had put a sign on stage saying they were in New York. I don't know how you drive through Manhattan to get to Randall's and somehow think you're in Jersey. It was pretty funny though, and made it worth sticking around. Much like MCR's show, no one else seemed to care that they sounded like crap, and all the girls sang along as loud as they could. I guess that's all that matters anyway, that the fans had a good time.

All in all I had an excellent time. I've never gotten so sunburned or filthy at a Warped date, which is saying a lot. I've also never inhaled so much dust and I'll have black snot for the next week. I've never been so disgustingly hot or close to truly passing out from exhuastion. And I've never considered a concert to be an endurance test. Yet, all the crap somehow made it that much better, and one of the weakest Warped lineups I've seen somehow turned out to be one of the most fun all around.

"where i come from that means good on you for giving it a go"

haha, i know man, i was just fucking around. i had noticed it was the only post you'd made. thanks for the compliment?

"so if u don't like what he wrote, fuck off. you most likely enjoy shitty music..."

i think everyone here enjoys some shitty music from time to time. you make some good points though. and Strung Out are gods, can't wait to see them again in september.

as for everyone else, thanks for the positve comments... or if you were a dick, go fuck yourself. i can't wait for next years Warped so i can see worse bands, review it again and get everyones panties in a knot ;)

jockmcbored (August 21, 2005)

yes, specifically for that.... tch. bit touchy are we. read the statement again and you will notice that i thought your review was poor but..... and it's a big but... FAIR PLAY FOR TRYING!!

I honestly thought it was a good review. Fuck everyone. A review is all about what the reviewer thought of the concert. If you don't like what this dude writes, don't fuckin read his shit. Personally, I totally agree with him. Due to Warped Tour 2005 severely lacking some good, quality music, he was "forced" in a way to watch these god awful bands (ie my chem and fallout). strung out ALWAYS puts on a good show, cause they're fuckin vets of fuckin hard rock.

so if u don't like what he wrote, fuck off. you most likely enjoy shitty music...

No, MCR is a disaster of a band.

AlmostPunkEnough (August 18, 2005)

agreed, ice-cold. i don't know how anyone can expect a bad review of a live show. the vast majority of the time, if you're going to a show, it's because you like the band.

"Motion City Soundtrack is a fucking disaster of a band....that is all."

thanks for letting everyone know that. now we can all stay away from the awfulness that is MCS. i don't know why i saw them to begin with!!!

ice-cold (August 17, 2005)

how can a review like this not come off biased? Honestly it's warped tour, you have to make a choice of which bands to see. Of course he's going to pick bands he knows. I went to warped tour and I watched similar bands as you: reggie, thrice, atreyu, mxpx, avenged sevenfold, etc.. but unfortunately there was no millencolin. I enjoyed all the bands I mentioned, even mxpx and I'm no fan of theirs. Atleast you stood by the stuff you liked and never focused on the bad, theres always going to be horrible performances but either way they seem to be enjoyable even if it's only for a few laughs. Like when coheed and cambria got bottled off last year at the same show in calgary. One can only hope they learn to get the experienced bands with quality music instead of the gimmicks.

AlmostPunkEnough (August 17, 2005)

exactly jones. i wanted to try and switch up what i said about every band, not that i did a very good job, but i tried. and maybe i'm just stupid, but i can't remember every set list for every band, let alone in some sembelence of order. as for spin kicks, i think there should be some sort of olympic based scoring system for them, so i can just rattle off numbers.

i don't think it was the May people, but probably the lack thereof that seems to be pissing everyone off.

but seriously, does anyone have anything constructive to say? i know the dicks are just trying to be dicks, but if you really hate it at least gimme an example why. retarded and gay don't really count.

anyway jones, people are gonna think we wanna make out, so i gotta go brush my teeth.

stevejonestherealbones (August 17, 2005)

"fuckin horrible review..i agree with everyone who disliked it"

people are gonna think i'm gay for almostpunk...but whatever, i call myself jonesthebones for christsakes...anyway

what is so bad about the review/? is it that he didnt see bands you wanted him too? cause its warped its hard to see all the bands you want.

is it the length of the set descriptions? again its warped. he cant sit there and get every set list and describe all the spin kicks and shit. that would take forever.

what is it? is it the May people? because if it is,,,then ok.

thanks for the kind words jones, i'm glad one of the few people i respect on this site doesn't hate my review. i'm sure someone will call us gay soon.

"Score is for people who pass out at shows."

haha, i know i'm a pussy for passing out. i was pretty fucking hammered the night before, and took a really bad shit that morning, so i was tired and dehydrated to begin with. not really an excuse, i know... as for planning ahead, like someone said, it's not like you can bring water in. beyond that, i have no ideas. well, besides not drinking heavily 12 hours before.

Last San Francisco one I went to let you bring food and water. In fact, most of the other ones I've been to let you bring both too. If you can't then bring lots of cash to make sure you can get water. I'm sorry I've been to lots of all day events (inculding Lollapoloza[sp] in LA, and Warped Tour in Arizona which was hotter than shit and no shade) where I didn't pass out. I can't seem to see a good reason for it. If you're that sick then leave and get some water. I'd rather lose out on my $25 ticket than pass out and possibly suffer brain damage.

Damn, I remember going to the Warped Tour in Pompano. I made the mistake of going to see MCR- it's not so much that they were bad, but so many people were there it was a crap experience. By the end of their set, about half the people around me were crying to be taken out because they were so miserable. The worst part is that I'll have to put up with those same assholes to see Alkaline Trio and Reggie.

Score is for Big D and the Kids Table.

skaboom (August 16, 2005)

Plan ahead? How? You could not wear a black band t-shirt I guess, but what else? There's never any shade, and they don't let you bring water bottles in (at least in VA Beach) so that doesn't leave you many choices.

Dante3000 (August 16, 2005)

I suggest Warped Tour have a pot to see who can guess how many retards pass out from heat exhaustion/sun stroke. It'd be like $5 to enter the pool and the winner gets a t-shirt or something. I understand that it's hot and water isn't cheap but people need to plan ahead or be left to die and trampeled when the hordes show up for MCR.
That being said, not a bad review. There are a few points I may argue but as a whole you said pretty much right off you only wrote it because you had a good time. Not going this year it was sort of like following someone who did go, and then being glad I didn't go.
Score is for people who pass out at shows.

-"typical review. in the future you don't need an explanation for liking atreyu live or any other band to save face on this shitty website."

first of all, i don't really like Atreyu, though 'right side of the bed' is a damn catchy tune.

second, i don't think i come off as pretending to not like any band in this review. i think it's obvious that i'm a fan of MxPx and i've said so in numerous other threads. as well as Motion City Soundrack, and numerous others.

i agree with both people below me about standing up for what you like. who the fuck cares about what anyone on this site has to say anyway? most people just post here for the sake of being a dick. and it's funny how many 20 year old (at least) guys were singing along to fall out boy. i can only imagine that some of them are the same people posting here about how gay they are.

-"i understand the whole mutli-platinum, mtv thing, but since this was in new york i would have figured that there would be some real music fans there"

i had hoped the same thing, but i guess i'm too optomistic. there was still a solid group of kids there watching. i'm not good at estimating numbers, but it had to be a couple hundred. no matter, it just made it more fun anyway.

"Yeah, that is so true.. People on this site need to stand up for what they like.. I think everyone here needs to realise that music is subjective and not everybody likes the same thing... If you like something that may be frowned upon (mxpx, fall out boy etc.) stand up and be proud about it..."

I agree with you. Fuck man, if you like a band, be proud of it. I don't believe in "guility pleasures." If you like a band, don't feel guilty about it, enjoy the music. But at the same time everyone knows music is "subjective," but shitty music is shitty music. Nobody here is going to argue for Ashlee Simpson's talent credentials. People like her music, yes, that's still subjectivity, but that doesn't mean it's good.

AlmostPunkEnough (August 16, 2005)

a couple things:

i know no one gives a shit about the personal aspects of the review, i.e. me walking around and shit, i just thought that was the easiest way to write it.

i'm sure i'll get ragged on for liking certain bands, and i don't particularly care. besides Strung Out and Millencolin, i wouldn't consider any of these bands my 'favorites', but that doesn't mean they're not enjoyable.

the only reason i wrote this is because i had a great time at the show, and that's it.

bash away...
