Alternative Press, the leading magazine for screamo-poppy-punk music, developed a concept back in 2007 to build its own annual tour. The tour has featured Cute is What We Aim For, 3OH!3, Family Force 5 and many more. AP is kicking off its third year on September 25, 2009 with the Academy Is, Mayday Parade, Set Our Goals, The Secret Handshake and You Me at Six.
But for three years in a row, New Mexico hasn’t been placed on the grid. What the hell AP? Come on—with six shows in California, two in Arizona and three in Texas, what options are left?
Drive to the nearest tour stops:
October 4, Denver • 449.25 mi./ 6 hours
October 18, Phoenix • 419.55 mi./ 6 hours
October 20, San Antonio • 734.47 mi./ 11 hours
Or cross your fingers that AP will remember the fifth largest state in the U.S. on their fourth year.
