Warped Tour: Motion City Soundtrack 7/17 Uniondale NY

July 27, 2010 drainu182 0

By Britnee Foreman

I love going to shows (duh, it’s why I have this sweet gig). There is awesome music, fun shenanigans, and a communal feeling in the audience that we’re all in this together, experiencing the epic epicness in front us. These have been some of the best shows I’ve ever been to. And yet, that was not my experience at the Motion City Soundtrack set.

Now disclaimer time, I really dig Motion City Soundtrack. I usually have a …

Warped Tour: Mayday Parade 7/17 Uniondale NY

July 27, 2010 drainu182 0

By Britnee Foreman
The Mayday Parade set was insanity. First there were people crowding the stage as soon as the previous set was finished (sorry Dinner and a Suit). Not only that, but people were climbing into trees and on top of port-a-potties for a view. Let me repeat that: port-a-potties, on top. Perhaps they should have been playing a stage bigger than the Ernie Ball Stage because there was not enough room. So much so that when a kid …

Warped Tour: Hey Monday 7/17 Uniondale NY

Hey, Monday!

So I was really excited to see Hey Monday live. Cassadee Pope is known to have an amazing voice so I was pumped to see this go down and see firsthand. I must say this that within the first song, surprised even. Either Ms. Pope is the best vocalist of our time to be able to run all over the stage and not miss a note or take and audible deep breath or something else …

Warped Tour: Anarbor 7/17 Uniondale NY

July 25, 2010 drainu182 0

By Britnee Foreman

Phoenix band, Anarbor, was one of the first bands to open Warped 2010 in Uniondale and immediately a crowd gravitated towards them. I had not previously heard any of their songs but at 11:15 am there isn’t much going on, so I gave them a listen. BEST DECISION OF THE DAY. The band made of Slade Echeverria, Mike Kitlas, Adam Juwig, and Greg Garrity is amazing to watch. The sound and the riffs they pound out are …
