How old is too old to go to Warped Tour? A punk rock debate

The Closing time I went to the Trucks Warped Tour, I didn’t have a driver’s license, the primary “X-Males” movie used to be in theaters, Napster was altering the Tune business with file-sharing and the “dot-com bubble” had simply burst. I was 16 years outdated with a pockets chain, dishevelled jeans, boy band hair and actual Vehicles sneakers.

I liked (and still love) Song, so one of the highlights of the Year 2000 for me used to be getting to peer a slew of bands I favored at the Warped Tour when it stopped at Suffolk Downs in Boston. I keep in mind that Inexperienced Day trashed the stage and set Tre Cool’s drum set on fire after enjoying my favourite music (“Who Wrote Holden Caulfield?”); I danced within the moshpit to Celtic punk band Flogging Molly; The Mighty Mighty Bosstones shot a man out of cannon; Papa Roach used to be becoming an enormous take care of “Closing Hotel” on the radio, But lead singer Jacoby Shaddix became me off along with his overabundance of F-bombs in between songs.

Perhaps that Closing phase was an indication I used to be in all probability already with regards to being too previous for the Warped Tour — or Perhaps just not punk rock enough. I by no means went once more, However that’ll change when I attend the annual extravaganza’s first-ever Syracuse stop on the ny State Fairgrounds on Thursday, July 7.
