A couple of notes:
Andrew W.K had easily the best pits of the day. The only other act to even get good non brocore shit moshing going was Parkway Drive.

Worst choice I made the entire day was watching Suicide Silence over Sum 41.

Fuck whatever asshole told me the Main Stage was in a different place causing me to miss the first 3 songs of The Dillinger Escape Plan's set.

The gap in between Parkway Drive and Alkaline Trio's set was almost unberable because the worst bands on each stage were playing in that span.

I have Bring Me The Horizon's setlist because a couple of friends love them but I refuse to insult myself or anyone else on here with that shit.

Every Time I Die dropped their cover of Tourettes and Alkaline Trio dropped Sadie.

Review is coming later

sweet that Suicide Silence added No Time To Bleed into the set. i didn't get that at my date. and like i said before, Whitechapel needs to take out Eternal Refuge, that song blows. replace it Exalt or Father of Lies.

so Parkway Drive DID get a good pit? how were the pits for Suicide Silence and Whitechapel at your show?

Suicide Silence and Whitechapel had really gay pits. It was just a sea of hardcore dancers. Parkway Drive actually had some pretty good circle pits going for the whole set till the ninjas finally came out during Boneyards.

For such a short set time, Alkaline Trio are doing some killer sets. '97? Fucking awesome.

Here is my review.

Overall it was a really fun day. That being said the day did not start that way. I got into the venue pretty fast surprisingly but after walking around for a few minutes I could find no signs of set times anywhere. When I finally did it was 11:20 I found out that the main band I was there to see The Dillinger Escape Plan had already been playing for 10 minutes. After being misguided by a Comcast Center employee I ran as fast as I could to what I thought was the Main Stage and af it turned out to be the Glamour Kills Stage. I finally found a map and got there they already had just about finished Black Bubblegum. Despite missing half their set watching Dillinger was amazing. Spot on live and off the walls energetic. The setlist was amazing as well a lot of the best new material was played.

After Dillinger I made a promise to my friends that I would give Bring Me The Horizon a chance live. As many of you know I am pretty open minded when it comes to music and I will give anything a fair chance. I give Bring Me The Horizon a chance but they were still fucking ungodly awful. Oli Sykes is one of the worst metal vocalists ever. Some of his high pitched screaming he just spoke the words instead of screaming and he had some of the gayest gestures when he was on stage. Another whale of a tale from these bitches was how Sykes kept complaining about the lack of circle pits. Dude you have to realize that you fans are gold medal ninja fighters they don't like circle pits. One things these ninjas do like though is putting together the worst wall of death I have ever witnessed. I couldn't stop laughing it was one of the saddest things I have ever seen at a show. The only compliment I can give them is that they have good energy. Besides that Bring Me The Horizon is a detriment to metal and should stop making music ASAP.

Every Time I Die was up next for me. After Bring Me The Horizon it was refreshing to see a band that knows how to work the crowd properly. Anyone that is going to Warped Tour for the remainder of the tour should watch these guys. They are a great live band and they were a lot of fun to watch. One of the best performances of the day for sure.

While walking over to the Altec Lansing Stage to watch Whitechapel I watched Four Year Strong's last two songs. They weren't particularlly good but they weren't bad.

Whitechapel was up next. They were a lot better than they were at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival in April but they still had shit sound and they need to back some setlist changes. They play the same songs non-stop. Whitechapel played pretty well but they still aren't as good live as they used to be.

Parkway Drive came on right after them. I got to say Parkway Drive is a great live band. The vocalist Winston McCall is fantastic and he is hillarious. Great performance all around by them and I was surprised had circle pits going for almost the entire set.

After Parkway it became a waiting game for me untill Alkaline Trio came on as they were 0 bands that I wanted to see during this so me and my friends sat at the Glamour Kills and AP stage for a little bit simply because there were seats. During that span I witnessed this band called Artist Vs Poet. Holy shit they were one of the worst bands I have ever heard in my entire life. Beyond whiney pop-punk that made All Time Low sound like Iron Fucking Maiden in comparison. After that shitshow Reverend Peyton Big Damn Band came on. I could not stop laughing at these guys. I understand they are trying to make fun,brainless music but they were just ridiculous. They had some talent but they sounded like music Borat would listen. After that Sparks To The Rescue played. They were still pretty weak but in comparison to the other bands that I just endured they weren't that bad.

Finally after the horrid array of sounds I watched Alkaline Trio. It has been a while since I had seen Alkaline Trio but they played pretty well. I will say the setlist was not the strongest mainly due to the lack of songs off of Crimson my favorite record by them. Despite the issue I still enjoyed there set a good amount and Armegeddon and 97 are two of my favorite songs by them.

I didn't watch any bands for another hour and a half after that because during the span In Fear and Faith,Alesana, The All-American Rejects,Hey Monday,Never Shout Never,Emarosa,Emmure,Mayday Parade and a few other awful bands were occupying their respective stages.

I made a very bad choice to watch Suicide Silence over Sum 41. Sum 41 i'm sure would been a lot of fun for the nostalgia and I highly regret not watching them. I am not even a big Suicide Silence fan at all. I am take it or leave it on them on disc but they do put on a pretty good show. They were still pretty decent but Mitch wasn't on the top of his game vocally. His voice kept cracking when he was doing his highs. That being said the crowd was really into it and besides the final act of the night(who I will be getting to in a moment) they got the best reception of the entire day. My friends that I went with all had their minds blown and just kept talking about they blew everyone else on the bill out of the water but they went back to the car prior to the last act who was.......

.....Andrew W.K!!!!! I knew Andrew W.K was going to good and fun live but I didn't think he was going to be that good. He was fucking unbelieveable. I have rarely seen a crowd so excited to see an artist in my entire life. He had circle pits going from the barrier all the way back to the Vans VIP Tent. Andrew W.K is such an amazing performer and he played the best show of the entire day. I was speechless after his performance and rarely had as much fun as I did during his show.

Overall a good show with a couple of letdowns and long waits with no bands I wanted to see but it was still worth it.

Andrew WK...

Cool review. I'm still shocked that (A) Andrew WK is still making music and that (B) he's headlining anything.

That being said I like fun, crazy music so I might have liked him also. Last I heard he bought a Manhattan club and was leading self-help seminars. Had no idea he was still even making music or that anyone cared...
