    1. Gallery : Warped Tour 2015

      Posted on in Gallery

      Warped Tour 2015 has come and gone and all I’ve got are these damn photos. Actually, I had an even better time this year than I did last year. As I get older, most of the bands I grew up listening to are doing or have done 10 year tours for my favorite albums. That leaves me with something vacant in my soul: the need for new music. People will scoff that I don’t know a lot of the bands touring these days, but I love going to Warped Tour to discover amazing new music. Last year I was very new to the Seattle area and attended Warped on my own, but this year I brought my amazing friend Sarah. Sarah is old buddies with Fit For A King and introduced me to their great music.
