May Day Parade brought early 2000s warped tour excellence to Portland at the Crystal Ballroom. They did a sterling job of effortlessly entertaining the crowd which seemed to be made up of all ages, hammering on the nostalgia of the bright ages of The Vans Warped Tour. May Day Parade were once a major player in the 2000s pop punk scene, with their name sitting comfortably among other acts like ‘My Chemical Romance’ , ‘Paramore’ , and ‘All Time Low’.

Throughout the night, a mixture of nostalgic past hits and energetic new songs were all played with energy and confidence, helping to solidify May Day Parades reign of pop punk stardom.
