13 gorgeous GIFs from Warped Tour 2012
This is Warped Tour 2012 on photo-multiplying steroids, so it's completely legal. Photographer Erik Hess (slideshows here and here) hit Canterbury Park in Shakopee this past Sunday, and came back with some winning images of bands like Breathe Carolina and Falling in Reverse, as well as lots of crowd shots, some mud-sliding, and a guy who decided to dress up as a giant piece of male anatomy. If you attended, see if you ended up in one of these moving pics, and if not, just gaze along and start prepping for 2013.
