With dozens of bands on the Vans Warped Tour, which came through Phoenix to the Cricket Wireless Pavilion yesterday, you'd think more kids would be talking about just how their favorite groups did. But there was only one thing bands and fans alike couldn't stop Tweeting about during the day-long festival--how freaking hot it was outside. As temps climbed past 100 degrees, brave concertgoers (and musicians) took to Twitter to vent about the blistering conditions. Maybe next year, the venue will figure out how to keep people cooler, but for now, you can read what people were buzzing about during and after the show.
@spencerbastian- Phoenix Warped Tour is a true test of human endurance. I'm having trouble standing but I've got to keep moving.
