On July 8th, I left at about 8 in the morning to head off to Comerica Park for Van's
Warped tour in Detroit. I was crammed in the car with Evan, Courtney, Sky, Alec and
Tyler, and we ended up having to wait in line in the blazing sun for about an hour.
None of us were smart enough to bring sun screen, and we ended up getting separated a
good twenty times. I spent most of it with Amber and Hunter, but I got to see a bunch
of my other friends like Sydney, Kyle, Chase, Chris, Matt, Dom, Mckenzie, etc.
I also got hit on by a lot of creepy people, got terrible burns on my arms and face,
bruised up pretty bad in the majority of the pits, etc.
The Acacia Strain, my favorite band, had to cut their set at least three songs short
because somebody had a seizure after getting knocked in the head in their pit.
Bitch, I was in the pit, got bottles and CD's thrown at my head while everybody was
having the trash fight, and I got punched in the jaw in the pit during Of Mice & Men,
and I didn't have to get hauled out on a stretcher. Vincent told us to get negative
and we did.
I got a few shirts, my favorite being my Wonder Years tank top and my TAS tanktop
that says, "The acacia strain fucked my mom... and never called back."
Other things I blew my money on/wasted my time with were the free condom tents, CDs,
lemonade, slushies and gigantic pizzas.
Yap, it was my first warped tour and it was pretty successful.
