It was another ridiculously hot stop for the Vans Warped Tour in Phoenix Arizona. Too goddamn hot but we managed. One person covering 7 stages and 60 bands was impossible but I did manage to cover who I set out to, with the exception of CKY and The Adolescents.
Most memorable by far was GWAR and their typical bloodbath. Managing to stay dry I was able to capture some great stuff from them. Other notables were seeing The Dickies, The Ataris, Alestorm and the host of others. But the most impressive were Bad Seed Rising. I had been offered coverage for them but was unable to make their show when they were in town but getting to see them at Warped was kick ass. Solid musically and Francheska Pastor and her vocals blew me away. All in all the show was great musically and not quite the cluster it was last year. Attendance was down a bit from last year but it was 116 all day this year so that sucked. A few shots of the bands are below with more to come.
