On a selfish note, I'm a bit bummed that this tour doesn't actually hit any of New York City's five boroughs...I gotta go to the 'burbs?!? I spent the first 18 years of my life trying to escape them!

Never heard of these bands.

Adam--you need to come out to shows with me more often! I know most of these bands and they are pretty terrific...

Stirring up the pot, as usual!

You're lucky. This ain't coming to CA!

Maybe there will be a second, West Coast leg of this tour later in the year?

Expect to see The Forthrights on the west cost this year. WATU will be recording a new record after this tour ends. Bong Island is da bomb, Royal City Riot & The Beatdown are on 4/22 date as well. Ska is Dread, big up Mustard Plug, WATU, Community Records and all the fans who will make this tour a blast!

Quit your whining Steve! We come into NYC all the time. You can make a trip out to Long Island/Asbury. haha

You can't catch a train on the LIRR for Bethpage and Garden City shows?
