The fine folks over at Live Nation have just announced a massive Emo-themed festival that will take place in October in Las Vegas. It also features more bands than you can shake a stick at but why would you do that to some talented musicians anyway. Here is their brief press copy along with the poster. I’ve taken the time to type up the whole list for you in case the poster is a little hard to see on the website.
The Press Release:
Festival to feature epic lineup of emo and rock artists from the past two decades, including My Chemical Romance, Paramore, A Day To Remember, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Avril Lavigne, Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Alkaline Trio, The All American Rejects and dozens more.

Now that the New York Comic Con has left our fair metropolis, its time to get back into the serious business of music review and tour announcements. To me, there is nothing quite like the celebration of a bands anniversary on tour and with that in mind let’s check out this news from the band Silverstein.
The Press Release:
ONTARIO, CANADA – Silversteinhas announced a massive North American tour in celebration of their 20th anniversary as a band and will be performing three sets: their breakthrough album ‘Discovering the Waterfront’ in full, greatest hits and stripped-down acoustic. Special guests include Four Year Strong and I The Mighty. Tickets and VIP upgrades are now available at www.silverstein20.com.
“It feels absolutely incredible to be celebrating 20 years as a band!”, says vocalist Shane Told. “It feels like just yesterday we were starting this thing in Josh’s basement – singing out of Shel Silverstein books and National Geographic magazines – and here we are embarking on our biggest tour ever. Playing three sets is definitely a huge undertaking, but you only turn 20 once. I’m excited to give our fans the longest show of our career – pulling out all the stops.” Continue reading Silverstein Announces 20th Anniversary Tour For 2020→
