Marilyn Manson demonstrates how he has carved out a niche in pop culture and why he has managed to stay relevant over two decades after beginning his career—and rightfully so.
With so many bands, it’s hard to digest Warp Tour in just one day. It was a constant battle running from stage to stage, on a very warm and sunny day, capturing new acts like Unlocking The Truth, a Brooklyn-based trio that just signed a Sony record deal, or more seasoned bands like super-entertaining metalcore grops, Dangerkids and Beartooth. The mostly teen crowd was super-pumped through the hot day as there was crowdsurfing and moshing at every turn. The NY-based, female fronted Blackbird played the Shiragirl stage and hometown fav, Charetta, played on the Ernie Ball stage. I was also able to catch legendary pop band Bowling For Soup and a personal favorite, Real Friends, who played a solid 20 min set. Scranton-based Gothic metal band Motionless in White had a huge crowd by their set while Falling in Reverse closed the show just before 9pm not allowing photographers in the pit.
