I worked as a “runner” for the catering staff at the Scranton stop of the Vans Warped Tour on Monday, July 11. It was a crazy, fun, and tiring 14-hour day. Here are some of the people I met backstage and beyond at The Pavilion at Montage Mountain.

This is Robbie, a handyman for the Warped Tour catering kitchen truck. I never would have guessed that was a job before yesterday. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Bobby. He is a comedian and filmmaker, and he is really going to hate this photo. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Bobby again. I’m posting this photo so he is only mad at me for two days over the last pic instead of the whole week. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Dave, the bassist for Scranton hardcore band Clever Clever. When not at Warped Tour, Dave and I like to hang out on Linden Street and make fun of the people who patronize Levels Nightclub. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Brittany. She doesn’t like being photographed because she thinks she’s not photogenic. Woookaayy, dere, Brit. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Justin. He was my boss that day and was one of the better bosses I’ve had. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Emily. She is a total sweetheart and one of this nicest humans I know. Alex Seeley is a lucky man. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Jimmy, the head chef for Warped Tour. He and I took an interesting trip to Schiff’s for steaks. Sorry, no details. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

I didn’t catch this young lady’s name, but she was giving massages backstage for a dollar a minute and was by far one my favorite people at the show. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

I can’t remember his name, but he has an interesting face. He asked about the best place to shoot pool in Scranton and where the gentlemen’s club was located. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

I never got his name or really even spoke to him, but he wanted a photo, so here it is. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Paul. He watches the backstage gate. He and his wife are huge Pittsburgh sports fans, so I gave him some Steelers photos I took to give her as a gift. She loved them so much that he got lots of action! That is one of my favorite compliments my work has ever received. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Jose. It was his birthday, so we filled his bunk on the tour bus with balloons and streamers. I’m sure he was thrilled after a 16-hour day. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

This is Donna. She is a fellow “runner” and claimed to “motion awkward” when being photographed. I had never heard that term before, but it is definitely a thing. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16

A young lady crowd surfing. I remember when I was young and thought moshing and stage diving were good ideas. Moosic, PA. 7/11/16
