Back on the Road with..A Rocket To The Moon!
Just two months ago, I had the chance to experience A Rocket To The Moon truly for the first time in Foxboro, MA. During my interview with Andrew Cook and Nick Santino, I learned about their songwriting process, how they all got together and some of their craziest moments as a band. To ensure my idea that this band was definitely not one to miss, their live show was electric and full of amazingly written love songs that melted the crowd completely. Lucky for the fans of the band, the boys are already jumping back on the road after a quick break for the holidays as part of the 2010 Take Action tour!
A Rocket To The Moon first started with Nick putting tracks on myspace and quickly it spiraled into it's current incarnation as a quartet of Nick, Justin Richards, Andrew Cook and Eric Halvorsen. They recently dropped their debut full length album on Fueled by Ramen "On Your Side" and they are quickly becoming a house hold name in the alternative scene! They are taking part in an extremely special tour and will be doing it until March 2nd ending in Dallas Texas.
Every year the Take Action Tour! gives a percentage of its' ticket sales to charity which should give you even more reason to head out. If not, just take a look at the lineup package for this tour. Included are Stereo Skyline, Call The Cops, There for Tomorrow, Mayday Parade, We the Kings and of course Rocket! Tonight they hit The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, Michigan but check out all the dates below for the rest of the tour! They promise a completely redesigned set and will hopefully be incorporating more of their songs from "On Your Side"! The boys will also be playing some in store shows and one headlining one off during this tour and those are included in the dates below!
