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!
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.
See you at the shows.
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!
