Hey there! I know that today is not my typical day to post but yesterday I was busy driving to Charlotte to attend Vans Warped Tour! This was a solo trip that I made because my friends were all busy and I really wanted to go. And to me it wasn’t a question, I wanted to do something and so I bought my ticket requested the day off of work and then I went and did it. But you would not believe the amount of bafflement I got from people when I told them that I was going by myself. Today if you participate in things on your own you are viewed as a loner, or strange its not considered normal. Who gets to decide what is normal? I think we each should get to decide what our own normal is, for me it’s perfectly normal to attend something on my own! And if I hadn’t gone I wouldn’t have gotten to meet one of my favorite female artists Juliet Simms and selfie with her and get her autograph and also meet one of my favorite bands We Came as Romans. How many opportunities have you passed up because you couldn’t find someone to go with you? Do you regret not going? I won’t have that regret and I had an amazing time by myself! Anyway my rant is over.
So for those of you who are not aware of what Warped Tour is it is a gathering of multiple bands and they take over a piece of ground, in this case the Charlotte PNC Music Pavilion and for $50 you can have a day full of outdoor concerts. For people like me who can’t afford to see all of their favorite bands and artists singularly in concert this was perfect! Four bands that I love were playing and really how can you pass up the opportunity to see four of your favorite bands for $50 and the possibility for front row or close to it seats. For me I was able to watch Set it Off, Juliet Simms, Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, and We Came as Romans. Plus a few others that I didn’t know about prior to Warped Tour but I will be listening to now that I have been exposed to them! I also got to meet Juliet Simms and We Came as Romans I mean really thats pretty amazing! Here are some pictures from my day at Warped Tour!
