Red Bull Takes Two Chicago Bands On Cross-country Tour

Red Bull rock-the-route

Thanks to our friends over at Windy City Rock, we got word about two Chicago bands that are participating in a cross-country tour along Route 66 that’s sponsored by Red Bull. This is particularly interesting to us for many reasons.

We’ll be keeping an eye on the Red Bull Rock the Road tour this week to see how things turn out. I’ve enjoyed both releases of  Brighton, MA (iTunes link). And I’m excited to see what Young Jesus is all about.

I’m also extra curious about the details of the tour.

Red Bull says “the bands will be judged on various criteria as they challenge each other on and off the stage along the seven-day journey….”

That said, we’re really looking forward to discovering how the tour pushes our previous Live Fix explorations forward:

The Red Bull Rock the Route tour dates are below and you can check out more info on the two Chicago-based bands Brighton, MA and Young Jesus here.
