Anarbor Take(s) Action! on National Tour


Local pretty boy rockers Anarbor will be hitting the road with Cute is What We Aim For for the Take Action! Tour starting Feb 11.

The tour is put together by Anarbor's emo-pop-rock label, Hopeless Records, through their non profit organization, Sub City, and also features Meg & Dia, Breathe Carolina, Every Avenue. It's the eighth year, for the tour, which donates money to youth-oriented charities.

Jimmy Eat World, Coheed and Cambria, Le Tigre and The Promise Ring played the first tour in 2002, but it's been downhill since then. In 2005, Gym Class Heroes and Plain White T's did played cementing, at least, so they have a pretty decent track record of identifying bands that will go on to short-term success with teens.


The tour comes to the Marquee on March 11, meanwhile Anarbor will be at The ClubHouse on Friday.
