WHERE THE AIR IS THICK WITH COMMERCE

On tour again, but this time not mine. Fullerton, CA - Vans Warped Tour - 10th anniversary edition aka Teenage Wallet Rape 2004 aka Orange County Mall Punk Expo.

There is a bus village, where all 400 or so people on the tour ride little BMX bikes and entertain sticky-pass girls who are about to find out what All Access really means. A ring of Bud cans and concert detritous rings anything that might pass for a trashcan. Walking the avenues that are formed between the lines of parked busses, is like Manhattan in summer --hot exhaust re-animates rancid urine and parking lot grit. It's L.E.S. in August to perfection.
