bfs and melee?! i am soo excited. i missed them come through portland and now i can see them. awesome.
they better come through southern california or i will need to have a road trip.
are the dates out? if not, when will they be?
thanks for sponsoring such a rad tour. yay.
Nothing I have is confirmed, but I would imagine they'll play Ventura since that's Army of Freshmen's hometown, and there will almost undoubtedly be an L.A. show. That's the best I can tell you now.

Dates should be coming out soon, since they're announcing the bands for the UK leg in June. I'm going to see if we can have the first crack at announcing them.

And anyone who has not checked out Army of Freshmen, I highly recommend them if you're into powerpop. They're also some of the nicest guys I've met in the music industry (as are the guys in BFS).

anything special? give me free tickets. for no reason.
Haha. Ticket giveaways will definitely happen. The bands have already come up with some great ideas as far as meet & greets and events go for this tour even before they asked us to help. So there will definitely be opportunities for people to hit up the shows for free.

Awesome news. I went to the tour last year and it was a great time. The line up, in my opinion, isn't quite as good this time around, but you really can't lose when you see BFS.
Well, last year was Lucky Boys Confusion and Punchline in the middle slots. Melee is definitely an upgrade over both (people rave about their live show, and I'm really digging their new CD), and Quietdrive is up-and-coming. They still need a little work on the live show, but so did Punchline last year. I do promise you that there will be more of an "event" feel to the tour this year as opposed to just the bands playing the show and hanging out.

I wasn't trying to take a dig at the band or the line up this year; just personal preference. I absolutely love Punchline, so I wasn't expecting them to be topped. LBC are great and put on a good show. Melee just bores me. Quietdrive, from what I've heard, sound pretty good. I'll still be there, of course.
I know you weren't trying to take a dig at anyone; I was actually just giving my own opinion.

I went to the BFS/Quietdrive show last night. it was so much fun. and im seeing Melee tommorrow.

what i can say about the dates is that they announced they would be coming back to Florida on this tour.
I talked to Jaret after the show and he said he wasn't positive. There are gaps on the tentative routing I have, so it's definitely possible. As I said, once we have all of the confirmed dates, you guys will know.

what's a ballpark estimate of when this tour will be rolling through, according to the "tentative routing"?
Dunno. If it hits Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on 7/2 as another user said, if it's coming here, it probably would be around that time.

Oh and Tony, once again from Chris and I hung out the other day, I asked him about the interview you were supposed to do with him, and he has no idea what was going on with that. Any clues?
We talked a couple times over the past few days, and I'm going to call him on Monday. He mentioned it, and we're going to do it; probably e-mail while they're in the UK/Europe.
