The Zippo Hot Tour

Zippo_hot_tour_2 If you’re looking for what seems to be a pretty cool "battle of the bands" type competition with the main prize being a ton of cool musical equipment and services from Peavey, Tama, Pure Volume, Pro Mark and more then check out the Zippo Hot Tour, a multi-city competition where the bands are judged both online and onstage. Unsigned rock bands from ten U.S. cities have until April 14, 2005, 11:59:59 PM EST to register online for the contest. The cities involved are Austin, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Raleigh, Denver, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Orlando, Pittsburgh and Memphis. Check out the website for details and good luck!


  1. Dudes….check out the Zippo deal. It is all about them supporting the local scene. This is very cool….right now online you can see all the bands and vote on which one you think is hot or not. Hot bands play showcases in September…I think voting closes soon so go check it out. (plus when you vote you get an email with a discount on Zippo lighters) NICE!!

  2. Many thanks to all who came and supported Pittsburgh music in the first round of the Zippo Hot Tour at the 31st Street Pub on Saturday! Kaj & Jaggerbush with a special bonus performance by Past Pluto ! A great night all around. 3 more chances to show your support so make sure you get to a show !
