How does one nicely wrap up two months of nearly constant work and interaction into eight articles? There’s no way I could. I tried my best to highlight what I could. If you haven’t gotten to read them all, here’s what I covered:

I reminded everyone how much our voices are desperately needed.

I tried to encourage good people to do a little more.

I talked about the amazing non-profits on the tour.

I recapped some of the bands who helped us the most. The bands highlighted were Wage War, Old Wounds, Masked Intruder, and Silent Planet.

But none of that comes close to covering it. I didn’t include discussion about Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman, and how incredible he was to us and our cause while on the tour. Or about Eyes On Satellites, an amazing Massachusetts band who played a date of the tour. Their singer volunteered his time and travel to help us out at our tent for two additional days. I didn’t mention Ice Nine Kills, and what a great time I had talking with them in our Save Our Scene workshop. I didn’t talk about the Bridge the Nation podcast interview I did (see below), or how those same guys were working incredibly hard every day to raise money for clean water through Wells On Warped. I could have even written a series based on the people I shared a bus with for two months, which included the staff of Full Sail University and other amazing people.

The fact is, this isn’t a personal blog. Warped Tour ended three months ago now. Not to mention, we have other areas to discuss and much more work to do. We are working to take on new areas, and working to make sure we are a part of the Warped Tour community again in years to come. We have to keep working, and we need your help. If you can’t financially help, join us.

We are seeing tides shifting, but we have a long way to go. We need you on our side. Let’s work together, and if we met you on Warped Tour, we look forward to seeing you again next summer.
