Today! Warped Tour at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater + Crabcore.


The Warped Tour starts today at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. I'm heading out there in a bit to survey the scene, but if you're stuck at work, Ryan Wasoba's piece on the bands there pretty much covers it.

One amusing thing that's been making the rounds of message boards, though: There's a band on the tour this year called Attack! Attack!, which has been dubbed "crabcore" because of its, shall we say, crustacean-like moves. This .gif tells part of the story:

...while Buddyhead's second-by-second review of the video from which that images comes tells the rest of the story. I've never really listened to them, so I can't judge for quality, but animated .gifs for some reason are always funny. It's a weird Internet law.
