or even back stage watching the bands play... Totally awesome.
But alot of that changed shortly after... We went to watch a couple shows from the floor... Face to face... Riverboat gamblers (where we saw the cutest 4 or 5 year old boy rocking out with daddy) and alkaline trio... Through these shows, there was no stop pot smoking... And at trio right in front of me blowing right in my face. Don't get me wrong years ago I may not have cared... May even had joined! Who knows.. But I was looking around at the little kids and even the 14/15 year olds and it made me sick... It's not fair that kids can't go to a show or moms can't trust letting their teen out at a show without coming home with a contact buzz... Ya know? Maybe I'm older than I think, I dunno... I was just disappointed... I've never seen the drug thing as bad in the Midwest... Though here Its legal so I guess more people are willing to take the risk out in public... Guys... Heres a tip. Buy some cheetos... Go home.... Turn on pink floydd... And get baked. You will love it... And i dont have to smell you stanky weed. Another thing... The mosh pits are insane... I use to be all about getting right up front... Pushing people around and having a good time. But here I swear their out for blood! You shoulda seen the looks on some of these kids faces... Fun was gone... It was time to fight. I just don't get how bleeding & black eyes =fun. Again... Me= old?
Or maybe like zaq said... It may not be a west coast vs. Midwest thing.... Maybe it's just this generation of kids? Less care? Less respect? I dunno... I'm at a loss... Over all warped tour was great and I'm glad we went. Josh & Jill loved the goodies I brought for baby Dot... (especially the booger bashers :) and it was great to see some punk rock and some old friends... And drool over my MCS lover Matt... Lol and even with all the other drama... Let's face it... All warped tours should come with this view...
P.s. Would love to hear some input on this... how are shows different where you are?
