10.14.09 POS PacTour Update

Minneapolis’ P.O.S. cannot wait to start the 2009 PacTour on November 6th and show people a whole new way to look at hip hop. P.O.S.’s newest album release, Never Better, shows off his signature style with a hybrid of music that conjures get-away cars, racing chariots, the pursuit of sirens, and the occasional rueful nighttime drive. For P.O.S., genres have always been permeable and he proves it on Never Better. A free download of "Goodbye" off the album Never Better can be found here: "Goodbye" MP3

PacSun, the clothing store inspired by the California lifestyle, has officially announced that tickets are on sale for the PacTour, featuring Rhymesayers Entertainment’s P.O.S. The tour will be headlined by Saosin, and features additional support from Innerpartysystem and Eye Alaska, kicking off on November 6th in Los Angeles, CA.

"I love touring with different kinds of bands. That’s really what this tour is about for me is playing in front of crowds that don't expect us to sound like we do, and aren’t ready- then making them ready,” said P.O.S. “Innerpartysystem and Saosin are good friends of mine from previous tours. I like the wide range of styles represented in the lineup, and it’s even better to have friends around. But really what it’s gonna be about for me is finding the people in the room who have never seen a hip hop show and trying to melt their faces off with rap."

PacSun is giving local bands a chance to compete to be part of the tour with a PacTour battle of the bands contest. More details can be found at http://battleofthebands.pacsun.com/index.php. PacSun is also offering one lucky VIP winner the chance to fly to Los Angeles, spend the night in a hotel, receive VIP backstage access to the finally of the PacTour in Anaheim and go on a $1,000 shopping spree with Saosin at the local PacSun retailer. Second place winner to receive $500 and third place winner to receive a gift-pack from each band including their latest CD and signed t-shirt.
