BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

Anti-Flag Tour Update and Contest

Profile photo of Megan-R

Posted January 19, 2010 by Megan Rondeau

Last week I told you guys about the sweet tours we’re out on this month, and I mentioned that you should keep your eyes peeled for an Anti-Flag contest you won’t want to miss. You probably thought I was lying, but the time has come!

Here’s an update from Chris #2 about the first few stops of “The Economy Sucks, Let’s Party” tour:

Detroit MI; Day 1
Doors are not even open yet. The fine young activists at Detroit peta2 set their wheels in motion perhaps even faster than we set the stage up. Old faces, new friends. This month of shows will be great.

Here We Go!
2

Omaha NE; Day 4
We are off and rolling. 3 great shows. Even if there was a “let’s go redwings” chant at the Detroit show, it was a great way to kick off the tour. Chicago was amazing and so was last night in St. Paul.

The peta2 volunteers have been incredible; working well before doors to the last chord, to the last person leaving the club.

This work ethic is so important to our scene. For me, punk rock shows were the first place I looked for real information. Whether or not you take the literature is up to you, but we are more than happy to provide the forum for the dissemination of positive ideas.

Tonight—my 1st show ever in Omaha. It is crazy to me, being in a touring band for 10 years and there are still so many places we have never been.

Much respect.
See you at the shows.
Chris 2

We’re having an awesome time on this tour and couldn’t be happier to be out on the road with such great people. If you haven’t picked up tickets yet, you can do so here. Come out to the shows, support good music and good ideas, and stop by the peta2 table to say hello to our hard working tour crew.

So, about that contest … for your chance to win autographed Anti-Flag gear leave a comment with your favorite show you’ve been to that you saw peta2 at! Two winners will be chosen at random to receive an autographed copy of the band’s newest album, The People or the Gun, and one grand prize winner will also receive an autographed split Anti-Flag/Rise Against 7″. The winners will be chosen and notified on Tuesday January 26

    my favorite show that i saw peta2 at was on november 7th 2008. it was my first time i saw Rise Against. it was an awsome show. the people at the tent were hella cool. i got a button from them that say’s meat is not green. for 2 weeks after the show i went without eating anything from animals. i was hella nervous about trying to tell my dad i wanted to be a vegan, but then i saw videos of Tim Mcilrath on youtube talking at the Denver veg fest about the hardest part about becoming a vegan or vegetarian was telling your parents and that gave me the courage to tell my parents i want to be a vegan. the ended up being cool with it. Thanks Tim

    The sad thing is, I haven’t seen PETA or PETA2 at any shows around here! I’m in Maine, the state that loves to talk about how green and environmentally friendly it is but thrives on the lobster industry and hunting and fishing! And have you seen the amount of trucks here? I love PETA, I love Anti-Flag and Rise Against, throw me a frickin’ cruelty-free bone here and console me about the lack of awesome concerts around here.

    My favorite concert that peta2 was at as warped tour of 05′ It was the first time i went up to the tent, as a meat eater. The peta2 workers talked to be breifly about factory farming, and gave me a dvd to look at when i got home, because of this interaction i have been a vegetarian ever sense.

    My favorite show has to of been Warped Tour 2009. I got a little pamphlet and this dude told me to sign my email address on a piece of paper. I read the book about a week after Warped Tour, and it made me become a vegetarian, like I thought to myself how cruel it was when I saw the pictures and read the words of the book.Warped Tour ’09 was a great experience for me and it really made a change in how I eat and do things

    I saw peta2 at the Area 4 festival in august in Lüdinghausen, Germany. It was amazing with Rise Against who mentioned peta2 aswell but focused on the war. Since then I have become a vegetarien and am planning to become a vegan, reading up on it and getting recepies.

    Loved your Detroit show. I was in the front row and got the privilage to shake #2’s hand while he was on stage. The peta table opened my eyes more to what is going on. I am now a frequent peta2.com veiwer and a vegan. I also have gotten my friend to convert to vegetarianism

    My favourite show that I’ve seen peta2 at was Rise Against last June. RA is always an amazing band to see live, and I love how they bring non-profits with them. It shows that they care!

    I’m seeing Anti-Flag tonight in Portland, and I’m sure it’ll be the best show I’ve seen peta2 at. Besides tonight, my favorite time seeing them was at Warped Tour 08 when one of my buddies gave up meat because of the effect peta2 had on him that day.
