It's obscenely hot; Texas hot, where the air is thick and soupy and you feel the sweat dripping down the small of your back. My shoes are melting on the asphalt. It's still a few minutes before 10am, and Dominic Harrison, the force we know as Yungblud, is dancing through crowds lined at the parking lot entry gates for Vans Warped Tour San Antonio. In pink converse, pink socks and pink bandanna, he entertains the perspiring patrons with a bright pink megaphone and homemade sign.
It's the final Warped Tour, and the energy is palpable. I'm here to meet, photograph and interview a select few artists and otherwise attempt to enjoy the 24th and final leg of the Warped Tour franchise. With the release of Harrison's flawless EP just days prior, the pink-clad rocker is at the top of my list.

With blue skies and eager anticipation, Team dRiFFt made the trek to Houston to attend the long-awaited and much-anticipated Love Street Music Festival hosted by Karbach Brewery. Little did they know, the day would end in deluge, seeking shelter in a makeshift sub-VIP cavern, lamenting the lost opportunity to rock out with their favorite New York indie pop alt-rock superstars.
Here you'll find archived band, festival and concert stories... plus blog entries from Team dRiFFt as they travel, photograph, interview and adventure!
