Final Warped Tour Review: The End of an Era (Hartford, CT)

  Entering the gates of Warped Tour for the final cross country run feels a lot like you’d imagine. It feels momentous and nostalgic and full of excitement for the day ahead. It also  feels completely normal, just like it has for nearly every year of the last decade that I’ve been attending. There’s a familiarity and comfort as I scan my ticket and take my first view of the festival—for myself and so many kids and even young adults, this place has been another home. Every summer we’d gather…

Regardless of what you do for a living or where you’re at in life, it’s important to venture outside your comfort zone every so often.

Anberlin’s ‘Never Take Friendship Personal’ Live in NYC Is A Wave Of Nostalgia

The second I hear Stephen Christian’s voice break through the silence via the new Never Take Friendship Personal Live in NYC album, I’m instantly swept into a world of nostalgia. I’m 18 and hearing them for the first time, as “Stationary, Stationary” rings through my car speakers, carefully placed between Relient K and Jack’s Mannequin tracks. I’m 19, and listening to Cities for the first time, after a friend let me borrow their CD because this was an album I just “had to hear.” (I never did give that album back. Sorry, Nick.) I’m 20 and…

PLAYLIST: Growing Up Joe

Hello there, lovely Infectious readers! I’ve had several years’ worth of wonderful adventures in the music industry and last month, Angela Mastrogiacomo was kind enough to hire me to the Infectious Magazine staff as a managing editor.

It’s always there when you need it, it never judges you, and it evokes an endless number of emotions in your heart. You…
