BLESS WIFI!

A lot has happened since my last blog. Most importantly: the Alternative Press Music Awards were Monday! At first I wasn’t planning on attending because I didn’t factor in award show attire when I packed for the tour, but I set that aside and snagged last minute credentials. I ended up wearing all black with a jean jacket and Vans (in case you were wondering. But I know you weren’t.). Many of us came straight from Warped Tour so it felt weird to be at Warped all day and then spending our off-day at an award show, but my goodness was it fun!

Notable moments (some pictures, some not):

-Enter Shikari being told to walk through general admission which led me to tell security that they were with me and they were doing press.
-Watching the bands reunite with their friends for the night; almost like a high school reunion without the awkward vibes.
-Coolio walked by the Enter Shikari guys and Chris said, “wait, was that Coolio?! Coooool!”
-Ben from Neck Deep performed with A Day To Remember
-Before presenting, Tay from We Are The In Crowd flexed with the skully
-All Time Low won some stuff
-Anthony from Bayside took a photo with Kevin Lyman (what a guuuuy!)
-Mark Hoppus photographing All Time Low on the red carpet.
-Having a day off from the Warped Tour buzz.

There are a few days left of Warped Tour. But we won’t talk about that until it’s time.

See you guys soon!

Always,
Courtney

Hey everyone! My apologies for missing the Friday recap, but here’s a recap to go with your Monday morning coffee/tea/water:

The tour went to Canada last week! We spent America day in Toronto and roadies, tour managers, band members and media crew alike were celebrating while sing-screaming Journey and Queen. I’d insert photographs of that, but I feel as though I don’t have permission to post them. (but if anyone wants to know what they look like: blurry, grainy and men shirtless while wearing American flag shorts. Much American. So love.)

The weather in Toronto and Montreal was absolutely beautiful. Well, I mean until it poured for ten minutes in Montreal and it made multiple people upset (the busses were approximately 1 mile or so from the venue. Not kidding. It was a brutal walk).

In New Jersey I had a heart-to-heart with Tay where I told her I thought she hated me and with a combination of my being sick with an allergy infection, I just didn’t actively try to hang out with her and then I apologized for that. I was also buzzed and I’m pretty sure I made a total fool of myself (sorry, Tay!). But all is well!

 Noted moments:

-Bayside covered The Menzingers in Montreal
-Julian and I started a drinking game for The O.C..
-Neck Deep played on a beach in Toronto! (okay, their stage was on sand, which I’m calling a beach)
-The crowd for We Are The In Crowd in Montreal were my absolute favorite group of people due to how loud they shouted, “You’ll crack just like the rest when I break your fucking jaw.” It gave me the shivers.
-Drunkenly riding bikes back to bus world with Tom Falcone
-Having a drunken heart to heart with Kara Smarsh

 I’m about to head into the city (New York!) with some of the dudes in Air Dubai. Expect a major influx of photographs soon!

Oh! Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties joined the tour yesterday! He had albums for sale but before his set they sold out. Starting tomorrow I will be posting a lot of photographs from my time spent with Dan.

See you all soon!

All the best,
Courtney
