5. Hydrate: Not just an issue of consumption.

The Warped Tour made its annual stop in St. Louis at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater (I-70 & Earth City Expwy, Maryland Heights), bringing with it such pop-punk luminaries as Falling in Reverse, Of Mice and Men and the Used. And, of course, this all happened in 100+ degree heat, because that's all there is anymore. That didn't stop this crowd, however, and since we've got at least one more weekend of this scorching endurance test, we might as well learn some things. Photographer Todd Owyoung was there to capture five excellent methods of staving off the weather.

4. Elevate Extremities: OK, this might actually be for hypothermia (or snakebites? Boy Scouts was a long time ago.), but we figure it's better to try any method at your disposal.

3. Circulate: It's like a fan but in reverse.
