SKAspot's Complete 2016 Warped Report

Published by: Andymanj on 24th Sep 2016 | View all blogs by Andymanj

Last month (July 2016), I had the opportunity to meet up with some of the ska (and a couple of non-ska) acts on the 2016 Warped Tour at Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, Florida. Joining me to help interview and photograph the bands was Tampa Bay's favorite uke fronted ska band's bassist, Nic Giordano of UNRB. I split the SKAspot Review into three parts due to length the blog would have been if I didn't. To make it easier for you to find the bands you'd like to read about, I decided to post this entry. In addition, I've included a video of some of the footage I captured. Enjoy!
