ApologetiX in Montana (4 States to Go)
Sun., Jul. 24. 2005 11:20pm EDT
Last week, we told you about our upcoming concert in Alaska, leaving us with just five states we've never played. This week, we finalized plans for our first concert in Montana: October 2, in the city of Hamilton.
That leaves only Delaware, Idaho, North Dakota and Rhode Island. Delaware and Rhode Island are both very close to our home state of Pennsylvania, while Idaho and North Dakota are neighbors to Montana, so maybe we'll play them all before the year is through.
It's not unusual for us to play faraway places before we get to close ones. Although our section of Pennsylvania is only an hour from West Virginia and Ohio, our first out-of-state concert was in Virginia in 1995. West Virginia became the third state in our union later that year, but we didn't play Ohio until 1996 ... after we'd played Virginia and West Virginia again, plus Florida and Georgia three times apiece, and South Carolina once.
If you're interested in possibly booking a concert in one of the four "final frontier" states (or any other state), please contact our booking agent, Kathleen Burke, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 949-770-3001.
