Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless have just announced that they will be headlining the 2014 “SnoCore Tour” and be bringing along Heaven’s Basement, Crobot and The Letter Black to up the musical ante for their fans.
You don’t need Gossip Girl to tell you that this tour is going to be something that their fans talk about for months after, and since I caught the band during their recent “Going To Hell” tour I can honestly say that they really are solid on the stage. Another winner comes via Heaven’s Basement who I have now caught twice and think are a fantastic group with a wide appeal. The SnoCore Festival is a new one to my ears so in the event you are with me on this I have copied their description text from the website to give you the low down.
“The SnoCore Tour, a celebration of music and winter sports, is back after a two-year absence. The tour has spanned more than fourteen years, running annually from 1996 to 2010 and was established as a way to fill the musical void during the winter months which was traditionally overlooked by other tour packages that are focused on spring and summer. In its first year, SnoCore showcased such bands as Sublime and Less Than Jake, over the years everyone from Blink-182 to Incubus to Everclear to System of a Down graced the SnoCore stage. Now, after a brief hiatus, Wind-up Records and TKO are proud to be uniting to bring SnoCore back to the winter 2014 music scene and back to its roots.”
I’ve lined out the run of dates and highlighted our own regional gig. It’s too early to know if a contest will be held on the blog or if I am planning on attending as press but if we do you know that you will be made aware. Are you excited about this particular tour returning?
