I'm sitting in a Starbucks in Dallas, TX, (savoring every minute I have with air conditiong!!), trying to come to terms with the fact that I only have 2 days left on the Vans Warped Tour with Kansas City band the Beautiful Bodies. After playing 5 shows in California back in June, we had a month off back home and picked back up in Bonner Springs last week to finish the tour.
Life on the road has been pretty grueling, but I've loved every minute of it. I've been selling merch for the band on tour, and when I've had time, I've been able to check out some bands! My favorites have been Motion City Soundtrack and The Story So Far.
Bowling for Soup just joined the tour for the last 3 shows, and to say I'm excited to see them would be an understatement. They put on an unbelievably fun show!
I have 2 more days on the tour (including going to Warped Tour PROM tomorrow night… Yes, that's a thing. I can't wait!)
What bands do you think I should check out before the tour ends?! Check out the lineup at http://www.vanswarpedtour.com and comment here with your suggestions!
Now it's time for me to head back to the van!
