The 15th annual Vans Warped Tour rolled into Home Depot Center in Carson for the final show of the long summer trek that showcases everything from old school punk rock to the latest screamo bands. It seems like a lot of the older punkers listed on the ads were missing in action, including TSOL, Flipper, Bad Religion, Fear, Pennywise, the Dickies and others. There were plenty of new-age punkers to pick up the slack though, led by Gallows, Escape the Fate, Tat, Chiodos and Alexisonfire, to name a few.
