If you want to get some serious tanning done, your best bet might be to skip the beach and just go to the Vans Warped Tour. The sun scorched this past weekend as fans gathered to check out this summer’s Warped Tour stop at the Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, N.Y. and the Monster Stage was a popular destination.

Metal group the Black Dahlia Murder gave eardrums a serious beating on Warped's aptly titled Monster Stage as they unleashed one hell of a set highlighted by songs from their new record ‘Everblack.’ Frontman Trevor Strnad got heads banging as he spat venom with his vocals.

The California “soul punx” of Letlive easily had one of the best performances of the day. Jason Aalon Butler is one of rock's current most powerful frontmen and is quickly making a name for himself when it comes to live performances. Letlive are also on tour spreading the word about their new record ‘The Blackest Beautiful.’

The raw energy and passion of the entire band is truly a sight to see onstage. For example, Butler beat the hell out of an wooden box, tried spinning it on his head and then proceeded to wear it (photos below). The antics and visuals of Butler will remain with you for a long time and soon enough Letlive will be headlining these major festivals.

There were no woes at all as Woe, Is Me kicked things off in the early afternoon. The Atlanta rock outfit had the crowd bouncing with their lively stage presence and also delivered one of the Monster stage's stronger performances.
