Listen to the lullaby of carbon monoxide
Warped Tour kicks off in less than four days, and it’s going to be an amazing summer. We posted a Warped Tour Preview last week, and today we’re going a step further with the release of a Crib Sheet, featuring our staff’s can’t-miss picks. Print out a copy and bring it with you to your Warped date to help plan out your must-see bands in each genre, and to jot down any other bands on your checklist. Download a 8.5x11in version of the sheet you see above here and check out the full Warped Tour routing below!
A hint of more things to come.
I believe in the Butterfly Effect.
I’ve had an interesting life when it comes down to upbringing, education, location, and of course, my job. Where and how people end up is always an incredibly interesting topic of discussion to me. It’s because of that interest that I am such a stickler for dates and events, for the better or worse. I know exactly how I got to where I am today.

Four years ago today I took the Metro North from Grand Central to White Plains on the first Friday after my sophomore year of high school finished. My friend Laurel picked me up from the train station and we drove to Purchase, NY for Future Stars orientation, where I would finally be a counselor after being a camper/CIT at the camp for the better part of my life. At orientation I regrouped with a bunch of old friends and met a few new ones.
One in particular was Emily Coch, a person who would go on to be many things in my life.
I looked down at my phone last night while thinking about younger summers in my life and was taken aback by the date. It was the last small change in my life that resulted in a large state (i.e., the definition of Butterfly Effect). Friendship, love, and PropertyOfZack were born out of that small change in a gym. That small change is why I’m here how I am today.
It fascinates me so much how you just never know, and could never know until you look back at it.
It will be made right someday.
You’ll always be the one I’m always waiting for
