Going Live: Vans Warped Tour 2010

© Jeff Parsons

For the 2010 installment, the annual tour brought out a few grizzled big guns (Every Time I Die, The Dillinger Escape Plan), aging pop punk rockers (Motion City Soundtrack, The Rocket Summer) and a bevy of young acts handpicked for one purpose: to repeatedly pound your ears at an extreme volume.

But the gathering of artists didn’t attract the masses as the audience seemed smaller than last year and a lot more younger (don’t let the fedoras and inappropriate short-shorts fool you). Mr. Kevin Lyman said Warped Tour is in a transition, but is it a transition into death?

Pictures do speak a thousand words.
