Eye On Annapolis Gets Warped

Tomorrow, Eye On Annapolis will be covering the Vans Warped Tour 2011 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia! We will have several photographers and will be live tweeting from the all day festival. Be sure to follow us and look for the #VWT hashtag to follow us complete with commentary and live photos!

Tickets are still available online today for $36.  Gates open at 11am and the music continues on several stages until 10:30pm. The Vans Warped Tour is a day long festival featuring dozens of bands. They play one city and move onto the next. The tour started on June 24th in Dallas, TX and will end on August 14th in Hillsboro,  OR. The tour will play 43 cities in 51 days.

One of the sponsors is “To Write Love On Her Arms”

To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. It exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. Since its start in 2006, they have donated over $850,000 directly into treatment and recovery and have answered over 160,000 emails in over 100 countries. TWLOHA has one of the largest online audiences of any non-profit on both MySpace and Facebook, and was recently featured in Rolling Stone and founder Jamie Tworkowski won an MTVU Woodie Award. Considering the number of suicides in our area over the past years, this is a very worthwhile movement!
