Warped Tour Fever

So I've been meaning to attend Warped Tour at least once in my lifetime and at 27 years-young, I've decided it's now or never. The big deterrent for me has been that when I see the set list for warped tour, there's only a handful of bands that I really wanna see, but since they only get 30 minute sets AND there's a risk that two of my favorite bands might play at the same time, my thought-process has always been that it's not worth going. However, I have friends who actually wanna go with me this year so now's a good time as ever to go. The first 8 bands are artists that I want to see on stage. After that, the next 12 artists are the only other bands I've heard of before, but have no virtual clue of their work. Basically, looking for advise as to who else I should see besides the first 8 bands when Warped Tour comes to Chicago in late July. Any recs are welcome. We thank you in advance :)
1Face to Face

I was so sad when they broke up and regret not ever seeing them live. I was always checking almost everyday to see if there was a chance they would comeback at least one more time so I can see them play. Maybe there is a trick to this whole "wishing" thing.
2Every Time I Die

Saw them in 2009 at the House of Blues and I immediately made myself a mental note to go see them again the next time they go through Chicago.
3The Dillinger Escape Plan

Coming off their April 2nd date in Chicago where they performed the greatest show I've ever seen at Reggie's Rock Club. Hope they kick ass outdoors as they do indoors.
4Parkway Drive

Been wondering for a long time when they would tour the U.S. again. Again, this whole "wishing" thing....
5Alkaline Trio

This band always pisses me off because they never play enough songs from Goddamit and their sets usually consists of songs from their last 3-4 albums. I can't hate them too much because they did come out with Goddamit and created the song "Radio."

Not excited about their new singer b/c I never really liked him with Ignite. I'm going to miss Jim and regret not seeing a Pennywise show with him, but I'm still excited to see them for the first time ever.
7Fake Problems

Last saw them opening up for Against Me! in the spring of 2007 and they really impressed me. Their last album was a disappointment, but had its moments.
8Riverboat Gamblers

Also at that same Against Me! show was this band. They put on a very entertaining show and look forward to seeing them again even though I haven't been keeping up with them since that first time I saw them.

I remember when this band was like a top 20 screamo band on myspace. Is myspace still around?
10Andrew W.K.

Heard of him, but do not necessarily care for his work
11Attack Attack

Heard them through a Victory Records sampler. Not into that whole synth movement.
12Bring Me The Horizon

Saw them open for Every Time I Die in 2009 and felt that their music and show was full of energy, but felt like a big giant gimmick.

Speaking of gimmick....
14Haste the Day

I remember first trying to get into this band 5-6 years ago, but their music could never garner my interest.

There's this cute girl at work who swears this is a good up-and-coming band. If anybody knows about music...... Also, missed them by 30 minutes at The Dillinger Escape Plan show
16Reel Big Fish

Saw them in 2006 opening up for MxPx. A bunch of tools is what they are.
17Suicide Silence

18Set Your Goals/Four Year Strong

I always get these two bands confused. Probably why I never got into either one of them
19Sum 41

Back in my day, if you wanted to listen to fresh punk music on the radio, this band was the only way to get your fix. And the music industry wonders why people download music. And no, I did not get my name from their song "Fatlip." I hate that song!
20The Casualties

Never got into them and I don't know why. I've only heard 2-3 songs from them. Maybe I'll check them out.
