John and I watched ‘Vans Warped Tour: No Room For Rockstars’ yesterday morning and in just a few sentences, I can tell you my exact thoughts and opinions of this film.
No Room For Rockstars is a documentary film that – for me – was an absolute thrill to watch. By default, I’m a music enthusiast. I love listening to all types of music (except for a select two, which I won’t mention here). At the same time, I’m a documentary lush. I could sit and watch documentary films all day long and be tickled.
No Room for Rockstars gave me the chance to see just how a concert tour like Warped Tour is run; ‘behind-the-scenes.’ I mean, from a fan’s view, the whole experiences is great. As a fan, we go to enjoy the music. To grab fan merchandise. As fans, we don’t have to worry about cleaning up, tearing down, and traveling to the next spot (usually a different State) by the next morning. That’s not the case for the equipment crews, the bands and the wanna-be-band-features. They actually live it, work it, travel it, day in and day out, from the first show to the last.
Did you know: Warped Tour has been an annual event for going on 16 years? Did you know that each tour runs for 8 weeks? Talk about an exhausting life for everyone.
