The Vans Warped Tour makes it's annual stop at Riverbend Music Center today! It feels like a lifetime ago when I used to have to travel to other cities to see this traveling festival. These days I would feel a bit out of place if I went, but I still think it is a great event for young music fans. These bands are not pampered in green rooms all day. They are rushed on and off stages, loading their gear over a mile to their van & trailer also known as their hotel room for the summer. This is a rare opportunity to see artists do what they love doing without any of the BS. While you (or your kids) are out enjoying the bands please stop by the Ernie Ball stage to support our locals The Few The Fallen, Here's To The Heroes, and Let It Happen.
