"3OH!3 drew a massive crowd..."

Ugh...if this is the best they had, this festival really must have sucked.

I try not to be a music snob, but the bands on this festival have a shorter shelf life than raw fish at a market. I hope tickets were cheap. Anti-Flag and Shooter are the only two that I would have even been remotely interested in seeing.

I'd bet the farm that 5-10 years from now, most of these kids will be embarrassed to admit they were at Warped Tour.

Still not sure what the point of beginning with that creepy Dazed & Confused quote was. It keeps with the Tribune's happy tradition of summer pictures of young girls in swimwear, just like the WGN cameras ogle co-eds with the "Fan Cam."

Creepy, creepy, creepy.
