Westland is one of the many bands that will and have been playing on Warped Tour this summer. These guys will be rocking out on the Ourstage.com Stage for the next week and they will be writing a blog sharing their experiences! Check out the first, pre-warped, entry after the break.
Warped Tour. For the past six years these two words have meant a summer day filled with seeing my favorite bands, getting free swag from every booth that would give me something, and most notably sun burns. This year it means something totally different.
As the new bassist for the Boston-based pop rock outfit Westland, it means that I am actually playing the music festival that has been the highlight of my summer for all of my recent memory. More importantly it will be my first tour ever. I have been a musician all my life and it is amazing to see all my dreams coming to fruition. From being in small local groups to being in a national touring group, playing Warped Tour makes me feel like I am coming full circle.
Over the next couple of weeks I’ll update this blog with the exploits the Westland boys and I come upon while we are on this year’s Vans Warped Tour. I’ll write about the amazing crowds, the lack of sleep, the hot sun, and anything else that happens to us while we are on the road.
