Vans Warped Tour
PNC Music Pavilion
July 7, 2015

I braved the sweltering heat for roughly eight hours on Tuesday to take in all that is the Vans Warped Tour. This year was a bit frustrating in that a lot of stage times overlapped. Where in previous years they were scattered and you could catch at least part of dozens of bands, this time around you had to be a bit more picky about who you wanted to see. One of the first bands I caught, '68, blew my mind. They're a two-piece band that plays like a heavier Black Keys without any polish. It was really the only band that I left the day saying, "I want to see them again as soon as possible, and for a longer duration than the band's 25-minute set." In fact, they're the only band all day for whom I stuck around to watch their entire set. Sure, the big names like Black Veil Brides still put on an entertaining show; and off-the-radar acts like Beautiful Bodies did their best to get people to take notice, too. Meanwhile, Mod Sun looked like he just stepped off a California beach and Bebe Rexha looks like she missed the bus for the Katy Perry tour. 

Here are some of the sights from this year's Charlotte tour stop:
