Eddie goes to warped tour 2009

Yesterday, Eddie decided he was sick of Hilary and wanted to spend his day with Patrick and Rachel. They showed him a great time at the biggest concert of the year- warped tour. The show being 10 hours long, with multiple stages and somewhere around 50 bands, Eddie was very overwhelmed. The line to get in was gargantuan, so the gang opted for the "5 dollar donation to charity line", which got them in right away. The first couple hours were mostly hardcore bands, so Eddie stayed safely tucked away in Patrick's bag to avoid being killed in mosh pits. Eventually, it was safe to take Eddie out to listen to a couple bands. Rapper P.O.S., who is a very big deal in Minnesota, even let Eddie onstage with him for a picture or two. While walking around the various merch tents, we ran into a familiar face- Pat Brown from Sing It Loud. Although we weren't in the giant line for pictures and autographs, Pat remembered Eddie from the show at the garage and let us get a quick picture of the two of them. There were many a person walking around advertising free hugs, but after being oddly gripped by them, he decided that they didn't know how to hug someone who's two inches tall. So we moved along. Around 5 o' clock, there was a large lull in musical quality, so the gang decided to sit down for a bit. We played with the different colour effects on Hilary's camera and got a few pretty cool pictures. We saw a few more bands, and then it was time to go home. What a day!
