The Warped Tour is in town today. The buses of unknown, well-known and up-and-coming punks line the perimeter of the concert venue. Inside of the buses, the rockers and rollers epitomize a culture of people who hate on the popular crowd. Outside, miniature Avril Lavignes circa 2002 roam the streets with their long-boarding boyfriends as they wait for the concert gates to open. Yeah, you thought you were different, but that culture and style is older than you are.
Please don’t get me wrong, I probably like many of the bands playing today. I just get a kick out of all the punk rocker teens and how they stay the same year after year after year.
