The best thing about seeing Alexisonfire play Warped Tour in Toronto is that you could tell they were excited to be home. They played harder than Ive ever seen them before and it was great. Best part of the whole show was when George did a swan dive into the crowd. I told him after the show that it was sweet and he said all he could think about was not smashing his face on some kids head.
Gallows put on an amazing show every time I see them play. It was really cool when Frank jumped the barricade and sang most of the show from in the pit with all the kids. There were like 30 people taking photos or doing video so Im sure if you look you can see this from every angle imaginable. Here is my take on it.
Bayside played at 11:15am which kinda sucked because 1. I had just gotten my press pass when they started, so I missed the beginning of their set, and 2. 11:15 is just a wierd time to be shooting a concert, hence the one single photo on the top left of this post.
Chiodos played a little later in the day which was much better for taking pictures. I forgot how much I liked that band until I saw them play that day. I had no intentions of shooting them, not because I didnt like them, but just because it was so damn hot out and I wanted to relax a little. They were on right before Alexisonfire, and I was backstage with them already, so I decided I would go and take a few photos of their set from on stage. Im glad I did that now.

Silverstein are a great band and if you dont know who they are you should check them out. I did some photos of them that were featured in a recent issue of Alternative Press. Check that out by clicking HERE.
Here are some photos of a great band called The A.K.A.s. They played on the Skull Candy stage and they totally ruled. They are one of those bands that remind you of what Warped Tour used to be back before crappy bands like 3OH!3 were on it every year.
I am going to be posting a whole lot of photos from Warped Tour over the next few hours so make sure you check back. Im starting out with the random shots I took throughout the day. I used four different cameras to shoot Warped Tour so you may notice a little bit of fluctuation in the look of some of the pictures.
