Calamity Jane’s Warped Tour Recap

The Vans Warped Tour has always been the highlight of my summer since I first started going back in ’07. What gets me every year is the powerful way it brings people together. Different kinds of people near and far with different struggles all brought together by one thing: Music. The whole day is filled with excitement as people all rush to the stages to see their favorite bands play.  Even if they know no one around them, the second the song starts everyone sings and moves together as one with the band. I can only imagine how wonderful it must feel for the bands that play but from my own experience it’s  pretty wonderful for the crowd too.

Warped Tour allows this unique experience that lets you get in an up close and personal situation with many very popular bands. Heck, I went to The Story So Far tent after buying a tank top and just walked right up and chatted with Parker Cannon as he signed my shirt. With big arena shows, that isn’t possible. There’s an invisible barrier between the fans and the artist but with warped tour I  feel like that barrier doesn’t exist. They can see us and hear us just like we can do the same with them. We are all brought together by our love of music.

I’ve been as a pre-teen, teenager and a “young adult”,  i’ve even gotten backstage before but this year I was vendor. I worked  in a booth with my good friends from Communist Kayte, Point of View and Hella Mad Records promoting the bay area music scene!  I can’t even begin to tell you all the reasons why this was the best year ever.  Getting the chance to sharing this amazing experience with good friends and promoting what we love to do meant the world to me. Thank You!  Here’s some pictures from yesterday. Congrats to Communist Kayte for playing Warped Tour. You guys rocked! ~Calamity Jane
