If I'm counting correctly, there are 81 bands playing at the Van Warped Tour at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden on Friday. You might think that they're all thrashy pop punk Green Day wannabes, but there is some variation in the mix. For instance, there's the oddly named Gardening, Not Architecture, the moody electro pop duo of Los Angelenos Sarah Saturday (that's her) and Beau Sorenson who will be providng sonic succor to those fleeing the sameness of All American Rejects and Sum 41. More info on Warped, including the benefits of saying "Philly Steak For Mike," here.
