Official press release:

Celebrating its tenth anniversary of raising funds and awareness to assorted non-profit organizations, Sub City (Hopeless Records' non-profit organization which has raised more than two million dollars for charity), is pleased to announce the 2011 edition of Take Action Tour. This year's much-lauded beneficiary is Sex, Etc., the Teen-to-Teen Sexuality Education Project of Answer, a national organization dedicated to providing and promoting comprehensive sexuality education to young people and the adults who teach them. "Sex is a hot topic amongst Take Action bands and fans but rarely communicated in a honest and accurate way," says Louis Posen, Hopeless Records president. "Either don't do it or do it right!"

Presented by Hot Topic, the tour will feature celebrated indie rock co-headliners Silverstein and Bayside, along with Polar Bear Club, The Swellers and Texas In July. Kicking off at Boston's Paradise Rock Club on April 22nd, the annual nationwide charity tour will circle the US, presenting the best bands in music today while raising funds and awareness for Sex, Etc. and the concept that we can all play a part in making a positive impact in the world. Ten percent of the cost of each ticket sold is donated to Sex, Etc. and Sub City 501c3 non-profits.
