Hey, strangers! First off, let me apologize for our small hiatus. Life is completely unpredictable and insane at the moment, not that we’re complaining (it’s awesome), it just makes blogging, let alone finding a legitimate internet signal, a little bit difficult. Anyway, our second and most recent stop on Vans Warped Tour was in Cleveland at Blossom Music Center. If I had to come up with one word to describe the entire day, I would have to be boring and unoriginal and go with HOT. I mean, unbearably hot. So hot they had sprinklers and slip ‘n slides set up. So hot we had to change our outfits twice. So hot that people were unashamedly cursing the sun into oblivion. This isn’t to compare our work as vendors to that of the actual roadies and musicians, I’m just merely putting things into perspective: Warped Tour is amazing, but it’s definitely not for the faint of heart. Our advice is to prepare for everything, but expect nothing, because it never works out exactly the way you planned it. Of course, the benefits greatly outweigh any negatives and we couldn’t be more excited about what we’re doing.
We set up around 9 every morning, and it’s always a guess as to which stage we’ll be near. In Indianapolis we were right next to the Monster Energy stage, this time we were directly up the hill from the Domo and Tilly’s split stage in the amphitheater. We were actually able to catch one full show, this time Allstar Weekend were the lucky ones.
We really dig our tent. We love the rustic boutique look, and we love that it allows people to come inside and browse. If you can’t make it to Warped this year, no worries! Check out our online store and have just about everything customized to your liking.
OH and most excitedly, Novena Carmel from Wallpaper wore our pink Start Something crop top on stage! How amazing does she look, and look at that crowd!
