Warped Tour Was Really Fucking Good

So I was really surprised, doing some searching for the festival today gave me good reasons to go. List is bands I saw today, no disappointments.
1Moving Mountains
Pneuma


Sounded like Vheissu-Thrice at times live but they were a perfect way to start the day put on a fantastic show. Can't wait to see them again with Thrice in the fall.
2Middle Class Rut
No Name No Color


Caught these guys completely by accident while eating lunch. Had never heard of them before but was pleasantly surprised, for sure plan on giving their album a listen soon.
3Against Me!
White Crosses


Great band, especially live. Tom doesn't do much crowd interaction but you can tell he loves what he does. The set seemed pretty White Crosses heavy, regardless it was an awesome show. Cannot wait to see them again at The Fest.
4The Wonder Years
Suburbia: I've Given You All and Now I'm Nothing


I don't like pop punk much, many singers of the genre tend to be a bit too whiny for me. Regardless if that's just a generalization or not I like these guys. The crowd was ridiculously into it and everything sounded perfect. It did get pretty crazy so I had to step for a little while. Not much from Suburbia, which I prefer to The Upsides, but still a great show.
5Big D and the Kid's Table
How It Goes


Second time seeing these guys, even better than last time (also at warped). A ton of energy, and they focused more on there more punk-y songs. South Florida always goes crazy for ska bands and this was no exception.
6The Aggrolites
Dirty Reggae


Not a fan of reggae, these guys were great though. Lots of crowd interaction and just a lot of fun. Probably won't go further into looking into them, but if they're ever at a festival or warped again then I wouldn't turn down seeing them. Oh, and I saw them while waiting for the next band.
7Larry and His Flask
Ep


Honestly the one reason I considered going to this to begin with. Seeing them before Streetlight Manifesto earlier this year, they blew me away, and sealed themselves as one of the best shows I've ever been to. The amount of energy they have is ridiculous, and the crowd was awesome beyond belief. Quite the hoedown. I actually saw them twice, at each stop they do multiple sets a day, so I happened to catch one of their multiple sets before their actual stage performance. If you go to Warped Tour and don't see this band you're missing out. Seriously, one of the best if not the best band there.
8Sharks
The Joys Of Living 2008-2010


Only found out about these guys last week, and only because I thought their name was pretty cool. I could honestly see them becoming a favorite of mine. They're pretty similar I feel to The Gaslight Anthem, who are one of my favorite bands.so if you like them then definitely check out SHARKS, tons of energy with some really great songs.
9The Menzingers
Chamberlain Waits


Actually my second time these guys, the first being while they toured with Title Fight/Touche Amore. Soooo much energy, they singer/guitarist was all over the place. Another band you should check out if you like The Gaslight Anthem. Also a pretty perfect close to my day at Warped.
10Pepper
No Shame


Like I said I don't really like reggae, I also said The Menzingers closed out my day at warped, but I happened to listen to these guys while waiting for a friend outside the SHARKS tent. While I don't like the music too much, these guys are hilarious and they, like a lot of bands, had lots of energy. Anyways this was definitely my favorite Warped tour out of the 3 i've gone, at no part of the day was there anything disappointing.
