The Same but Different: The 2012 Vans Warped Tour at Reliant Center
|Some bands just hang out near Warped hoping to make new fans.|
It was outside the show on the way back to my car I met the above gentlemen. Icarus the Owl are on their own tour and decided to spend their afternoon hanging out outside of Warped, playing their music off MP3 players and trying to make new fans.
It was weird, but admirable at the same time. Warped is full of weird moments like that. People going down a slip and slide even though it's raining. Someone in a Spiderman suit crowd surfing in an inflatable raft. People hanging out under semis because there's dry ground. Monks chanting while Dead Sara does an acoustic set 30 feet away.
Of course you'd try and sell your CDs at the Warped Tour, even if it meant hanging out outside the gates.
Where else would you rather be?
