For this Vans Warped Tour 2013 entry I am bringing you to the Acoustic Basement tent. Earlier in the year I was able to hang with Brian Marquis a bit while he continued the acoustic tour after Warped. He brought the acoustic tent back to Warped again and he had a lot of great performers coming by to play for the kids.
Not only is Brian the tour manager and creator of the Acoustic Basement tour, but he is also a fantastic performer with an incredible voice. I have seen him play before, so I knew I had to stick around in the sweaty tent to see him play again. I was not disappointed in the slightest.
The Acoustic Basement tent is a nice little treat for those at Warped Tour. I won't lie, it is packed and usually super hot: a huge industrial fan tries to keep the air flowing though. But there is something special about being able to see some of your musical heroes play such a small, intimate show. The performers change a bit from show to show, but the core group is usually the same, and it's a fantastic group. ( I will have more of these guys coming up). If you are reading this and you are going to Warped Tour, make sure you stop by and check out the tent.
