SnoCore 2003

ARTISTdirect announces SnoCore 2003, “America’s first and only winter-season, road-show celebration of cutting-edge rock and the snow-sports lifestyle.” The tour begins February 11 in Albuquerque, NM, and will play at least thirty-one dates before it winds up on the east coast in late March.

“We’ll be doing the same show in every city we play,” says John Boyle, co-producer and co-owner of SnoCore. “For the kids in Salt Lake City, the skiing and snowboarding videos we’ll show between bands will connect directly to their experiences. And for the kids in El Paso, who don’t have the opportunity to participate as much in these sports, the videos will probably be even more exciting.”

Featured acts include Sparta, Glassjaw, Hot Water Music, and Dredg. “The kind of music we’re featuring on SnoCore this year fits right in with snow-sport culture,” Boyle explains. “I grew up in Lake Tahoe, skiing, snowboarding, and playing in bands. The adrenalin you get from playing music is certainly similar to what you feel in action sports; they just go hand-in-hand.”

In the past the show has featured System of a Down, Incubus, Sublime, Blink 182, Alien Ant Farm, and Primus. Confirmed ARTISTdirect SnoCore 2003 dates are as follows (other dates may also be announced):
