Thanks to everyone who came out to kick off Warped Tour today in Pomona, CA. Our very first day on the tour was a success. Thanks to Between the Trees for stopping by to perform an acoustic set and sign for kids who visited the booth. You can view two pictures of the set in the replies taken by our own Jamie Pham. Tomorrow we have The Reign of Kindo, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and The Matches lined up to stop by the tent - so be sure to stop by and check that out in addition to picking up some freebies. To find out a schedule of all our Warped happenings and to download a new, unreleased song by New Found Glory head on over to our Official Warped Tour page.
As most of you may know, Absolutepunk.net is having their own tent on this year's Vans Warped Tour. We have tons of great things lined up thus far, with more coming in. Due to Warped Tour starting next week, and with all of the requests we already have, we have set a deadline of 8PM CST to put in a request for bands wanting to play an acoustic set or hold a signing at the tent. Only bands who are confirmed as playing a stage on the Warped Tour please, as we cannot accommodate any band that is not. We will still be accepting any and all promotional materials to hand out throughout the duration of the tour. To submit signing request, or to send promotional materials for the booth,...
Absolutepunk will be having our own tent on the entire Vans Warped Tour this summer and we're looking for bands to hold signings at the tent. If your band is already on this year's Warped Tour and interested in holding a signing or possible acoustic set at the AP tent, please e-mail Melissa Johnson. Please include the dates of the tour you will be playing so we can assign dates accordingly.
The Graduate have new merchandise available at their webstore. Also, the band is looking for a little help out on their Warped Tour stint. If you can help them, they have a pair of tickets for you to that specific date. E-mail your name, city, and date of the show you'll attend if you are interested.
