Bryan's awesome, and did a killer job all summer with the tent. You don't realize how hard it is until you're out there in the heat for 12 hours busting your ass every day, and he held it down.

Such a great idea, I'm very glad it worked out. Brian really worked hard to make it work.

I think I had one of my favorite Warped tour experiences and my least favorite in the Acoustic Basement.

Such a cool idea, I'm glad it finally panned out. It kind of bums me out I wasn't able to get into his solo music at my date.

Awesome: Front row for Yellowcard acoustic. Incredible.

Horrible: Sleeping With Sirens fangirls pushing and screaming during YC's set and complaining about me standing in front listening to the music (I'm 6'2"ish). They weren't there to enjoy the music, they were there to try and touch Kellin. And then the second YC was done there was a massive push from the back and me and my buddy in the front were pushed over on the stage. Brian had already almost had to cancel all of the basement sets that day due to fire marshall, so he was really unhappy with them and almost cancelled SWS' set. We left after that point...not sure if they calmed down or not.

Isn't this just a Warped rip off of the Revival Tour?

revival tour was one of my inspirations for wanting to bring something similar to warped tour and i had chuck on my stage last summer and we had a blast together. chuck has become a friend and a mentor as well for my stage and tour. if you have been to a revival tour show you'd see it different. their shows are more of a collaborative event where all the artists trade off playing songs and covers together as well as solo and the style tends to lean more towards alt country, folk and bluegrass. that being said, i definitely wanted to bring that camaraderie and stripped down vibe to warped with a mix of pop, indie, punk, folk artists within the alternative/punk community.

I have been to the Revival tour many times. Truth is that its easy to get cynical when you see the Warped name attached to anything (that being said I have also been to Warped tour many times and I generally have fun).
I'm not judging, its just a similar kind of thing...there was some dude handing out Acoustic Basement fliers at the Hot Water Music show in Pittsburgh the other night.
