2012 UPROAR Festival Announces Dates and Artists

I have spent many nights in the city of Los Angeles with fellow music snobs making fun of ‘Red State Rock.’ You know the type of bands I am talking about, Shinedown and Godsmack and even Papa Roach.  There are nothing wrong with these bands, I would much rather put on a Staind record than a record by Lil Wayne. Yet you can’t help but notice how these acts can sell out massive basketball arenas in the heartland yet can’t sell 4000 tickets smack dab in the middle of Hollywood.

So it should be no surprise that the 2012 UPROAR Festival is not stopping in the great state of California. The trek (which could of course add a date here) is coming close with stops in Oregon and Arizona but zero dates for the Golden State. I am okay with this, and hopefully our friend Concertchk can catch this tour when it comes within a 300 mile radius of her home. Check out all the artists and dates for the trek down below:
