Jimmy Eat World, Le Tigre, INC Tour To Benefit Suicide Hotline

As was previously detailed on the Tripwire.com, the 2002 version of the Plea For Peace/Take Action tour will soon be upon us. The tour, which donates 10% of the door gross to Hopeline, a national suicide/crisis counseling hotline, also known as 1-800-SUICIDE, will feature performances on various dates from Jimmy Eat World, (International) Noise Conspiracy, Thursday, Le Tigre, Promise Ring and the band that Drew Goldberg must now stay at least 500 feet from, The Donnas. The bands will mix and match over a series of 40 dates, which are co-sponsored by Sub City and Asian Man Records, kicking off the whole shebang in Worchester, MA, on September 13 and jumping off the bus for the last time in an undisclosed locale in Virginia on October 28. And as last year, there will be a compilation CD available, also benefiting the Hopeline. This year's edition goes on sale August 20 and features tracks from Finch, Taking Back Sunday and Ultimate Fakebook, as well as tour artists Anti Flag, Common Rider, and Lawrence Arms. Great bands and a great cause mean only one thing: go check out this gig!
