The well-built songster who sometimes sports a mohawk is the band's emcee. Looking a tad like John Corbett from Northern Exposure, Carpenter blends elements of hip-hop and rock and sings songs about popping pills and drinking alcohol “just to get by.” His group recently won a coveted spot on a few local Warped Tour shows following a victory at the 5th annual Battle for the Vans Warped Tour on Monday.
Not judged solely by the quality of the performance, Carpenter says the victory was also the result of crowd interaction. “Our show is very crowd interaction orientated,” he explained following his noon time performance at the Pomona Fairplex. “We had a lot of people bugging out. It was fun. We ended up getting picked up.”
He added the day's performance wasn't about teeming throngs of adoring fans rushing the stage. “Just the opportunity to be at the Warped tour. It's something a lot of people don't get to experience.”
