Time of the year for Vans Warped tour...Three stages set up in the parking lot and one downstairs in the Amphitheater where I was.
After a day setting up sound the day before. No lights, since it takes place during the day, and no video because, well, it's punk rock...Stage is split in half, with one band playing a set while the next band sets up on the other half.

Just a couple of pics from my vantage point...Long days, the crew rolls in at 8am to load in bands arriving and set up the first few bands, One band finishes, and the next one immediately starts. 14 bands per day, with each of them doing a 40 minute set. The first night I was out of there at 9pm, but the second night, we had to load out sound, so we were there till 11pm.

Keep in mind that this is one of 4 stages....The headline talent is upstairs on the main stages in the parking lot. The pics you're seeing are solely of my assignment in the  amphitheater with up and coming new bands. Attendance downstairs waxed and waned; There might be a few thousand with certain bands that had rabid followings; like this Japanese band that I thought would be some insane chaotic noise rock but turned out to be a Japanese Emo AFI clone with a rabid following, and next to none for some up and comers. The point of having  the split stage with one band immediately starting after the previous one finished was to showcase as many bands as possible that appeal to the Vans Warped Crowd. 14 bands a day. These bands are barely used to playing in clubs, then touring in a smelly van and are grateful to play to whoever glances at the itinerary and  decided to watch them.

My beautiful bride and I spent the weekend in Long Island. Cutchogue and its surroundings to be exact. Vineyards and a lil beach even. Wine isn't great but it's not bad and the scenery is gorgeous. This past Friday marked our 10 year wedding anniversary. I gotta admit I'm a lucky bastard!

I was just in Cutchogue on July 24 with my sister! She lives about a half hour away. Happy anniversary to you guys! Great little diner. It’s there almost 80 years.

It was awesome! We did a tour around Havana and the El Morro castle and was able to smoke Cohiba shorts the whole way.
