There are some things I look forward to every year—MLB Opening Day, the first day after summer ends that it’s cool enough to wear a hoodie, and the start of the Vans Warped Tour! Warped Tour has become a staple of summertime since my first appearance back in 2001 (yea yea, I know I’m old). Last year I was lucky enough to hit the road with our amazing tour crew for a few days to talk to bands about our Animal Testing Breaks Hearts campaign. This year, I’ll be at it again!

Warped Tour officially kicks off today in California, and peta2 is there in full force to remind everyone that Elephants Never Forget about the abuses they face behind the scenes of the circus. Stop by the peta2 booth to say hi, pick up some sweet merch, and leave with all the free literature you can carry to help spread the word to friends and family.

You can check out this year’s full lineup here to see who all is playing your city, but to tide you over, here’s just a few of the bands hitting the stages this year:

After Midnight Project
Attack Attack!
Alkaline Trio
Breathe Carolina
Bring Me The Horizon
Closure In Moscow
Eyes Set To Kill
Four Year Strong
Mayday Parade
Never Shout Never
Set Your Goals
Streetlight Manifesto
Sum 41
The Dillinger Escape Plan
The Summer Set
The Swellers
This Time Next Year
Versa Emerge
We The Kings

Stoked yet?! Who are you most excited to see this year? You’ll find me partying hard with Andrew W.K.!

    I'm a therian /otherkin wolf lycanthrope that sees this lifetime in this body as a punishment that the god and goddess has bestowed upon me, but I try my best to do good to all living beings except usually humans which I hate and detest with all my being.

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall.

Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.
