Sub City Take Action Tour Kicks Off Today!

The 2010 Sub City Take Action Tour, presented by Hot Topic, kicks off today in Atlanta, GA! The 2010 lineup features We The Kings, Mayday Parade, A Rocket To The Moon, There For Tomorrow, Call The Cops, and Stereo Skyline. The annual nationwide charity tour, now in its ninth year, raises funds and awareness for youth involvement in charitable action.

In an effort to make a difference throughout the Take Action Tour, Sub City along with DoSomething.org and Driving For Donors have organized a series of charity events that allow bands to participate in local communities and take action. The bands will be visiting children’s hospitals in Seattle, Salt Lake City, Denver, and Texas for special meet & greets with patients, as well as an acoustic performance to brighten their day.

In addition to off-site charity events throughout the tour, We The Kings, Mayday Parade, A Rocket To The Moon, There For Tomorrow, Call The Cops, and Stereo Skyline will be making special signing appearances at select Hot Topic stores. Dates can be found below.

To date, Sub City, a registered 501c3 organization, has raised nearly $2 million for various charitable organizations; much of that a result of Take Action, driving home the fact that we can all help bring forth change and that making a difference can be as fun and easy as buying a CD or concert ticket.
