Photos: Avion Roe at Vans Warped Tour in Mansfield

Avion Roe have been rocking the Full Sail University Stage all summer long on the Vans Warped Tour. If you haven’t had a chance to see these guys live yet, I’m not sure what you’re waiting for. Their contagious energy caught the attention of passers-by from the beginning, and it was clear they gave 110% despite the scorching heat. Their set was well put together and cohesive, and all around entertaining from start to finish. They just released their album In Separation back in June, and it’s available on iTunes, Spotify, and more.

Check out my photos from Avion Roe‘s set at the Mansfield, MA stop on the tour on July 13th below, and stay tuned for my interview with the band, coming soon!

‘We are going to give kids a voice.’ | An Interview with Ashley Adler Coro

If you’ve been to Warped Tour this year, you may have noticed one of the newest additions to the sea of tents that populate the festival grounds at each city, Can You Hear Me? Inspired by family members who have grappled with suicide and addiction, co-founder Ashley Adler Coro and her mother tried to start support groups in her town and high school with little community backing. But they were determined to reach out to people who are struggling, so they turned to another resource: the internet. Teens have often found solace in outlets like Tumblr, other blogging platforms, and online forums, but are frequently exposed to even more bullying and judgment online.

CYHM? is an non-profit organization whose website is dedicated to allowing teens to express how they’re feeling without fear of that backlash, and have most recently taken their message on the road for the 2016 Vans Warped Tour. We spoke with Ashley before the Mansfield stop of the tour on July 13 to learn more about the organization and their plans for their summer on the road.

The Daily Slice: Can you introduce yourself with your name, your role at Can You Hear Me?, and your all-time favorite spot to grab a slice?
Ashley Adler Coro: Hello! My name is Ashley Adler Coro, I am the co-founder of Can You Hear Me?, and I think my all time favorite place to grab a slice of pizza is definitely Otto in Portland, Maine! They have some of the best toppings and the atmosphere is amazing! Continue reading ‘We are going to give kids a voice.’ | An Interview with Ashley Adler Coro
