Rockin’ at warp speed

June 19, 2008

Fairplex Insider has an accomplice whose proficiency in Warped Tour-ese will be obvious. Enjoy!

“…I mean she even cooks me pancakes and alka seltzer when my tummy aches…” (Cupid’s Chokehold in Wikipedia, for those of you don’t know this tune) Mosh pits, body vibrating bass and awesome bands. Can a Friday afternoon get any better?  I don’t think so!  On Friday, June 20th Fairplex will be rockin’ as the Vans Warped Tour makes a stop here for yet another year of music and live action.  With multiple stages and high action sports it is a sight to see and hear!

“Got chicks, all hot chicks…” (Clothes Off)  Anyways, there is definitely one band I can’t WAIT to see…Gym Class Heroes!  With their ever popular “Cupids Chokehold/Breakfast in America” (Sampled from Supertramp) and “Clothes Off!” both from their As Cruel As School Children album.  GCH gained major fame as an indie band with a hip hop style unlike any other: They actually feature live instrumentals in their music. If you want to learn more about them check out their website, or just wander on down to the lovely Wikipedia.


“We’re the Pirates who don’t do anything; we just stay at home and lie around!” (We’re the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything) Being a teenager doesn’t mean I know every band performing.  In fact, I only know 3!  I’m such a dweeb!  I’ll take Beach Boys any day of the week, but ask me if I know who Relient K is, and chances are I’ll shrug my shoulders and go “who?”  Don’t get me wrong, I more than likely love their music, I just don’t know it’s them singing!  This next statement should tell you what kind of person I am…I know Relient K sings “We’re the Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything” from Veggie Tales.  I can’t believe I just admitted that.

“And I’m racking my brain for a new improved way, to let you know you’re more to me than what I know how to say…” (Must Have Done Something Right)  Well, now that you know a little about me and who is performing, are you ready to go?  I can’t wait to meet all you faithful bloggers out at Warped Tour! See you on the infield.


  1. Love, Love, Love Cupid’s Chokehold! I’m no fanatic or anything, but they rock. It will be a gr8 afternoon at Fairplex. Check me out – I’ll be wearing a black shirt, black shorts and black Vans. Yeah! See ya there!

  8. Hey Somewhere Out There. Man, it WAS hot that day. Still didn’t seem to affect the bands or the Vans Fans. We don’t have any other events scheduled right now, but you never know. Keep checking the blog and I’ll keep you posted.
