First Ever NYLON Magazine Music Tour Produced by Live Nation to Feature She Wants Revenge, Be Your Own Pet, The Virgins and Switches


“Over the past two years we have built an extensive club and theater network across North America which includes iconic music venues like our House of Blues and Fillmore clubs,” said Live Nation Vice President of Theater and Club Programming, Kelly Kapp. “This unparalleled network of music venues provides partners like NYLON with a turnkey option to stage tours with up-and-coming bands. NYLON is one of the most forward thinking and cutting edge publications in the world, we have welcomed their exceptionally hands-on role in choosing such a great lineup.”

Since its launch in 1999, NYLON magazine has provided a unique voice, style and perspective to legions of intelligent, hip young women. An authority on fashion, music and beauty, NYLON has been called “a force to be reckoned with,” delivering fresh editorial with groundbreaking photography and design. With Marvin Scott Jarrett, NYLON’s Founder and Editor-in-Chief, at the helm, NYLON has been celebrated for its singular style, bold photography and stunning composition.

“We are thrilled to be teaming up with Live Nation to bring four of the most cutting edge bands to our readers and music fans around the country,” said Mr. Jarrett. “Live Nation’s House of Blues and Fillmore clubs, and their unparalleled collection of theaters like The Wiltern in Los Angeles and the Commodore in Vancouver, made them a perfect partner for this tour. Our magazine has always been about the fresh and the provocative and this tour embodies our mission to fuse music and style and bring it to the people.”

She Wants Revenge has continued to build upon the success of their 2006 debut album, which after exploding on to dance floors and radio waves across the country went on to sell more than 300,000 copies in the US alone, with their first single “Tear You Apart” becoming a top 5 Alternative Radio Single. They have toured with such critically acclaimed acts as The Kills, Bloc Party and Depeche Mode.

Nashville-raised Be Your Own Pet’s primal garage punk rock sound has won them the praise of indie critics everywhere with both of their full-length albums. Pitchfork Media described their debut self-titled album as being played with “…flair and panache and enthusiasm that belies their youth” and their performance on the recently released Get Awkward as having “…graduated from high-school sass to world-conquering.”

The indie rock of New York’s The Virgins are riding the buzz off their aptly titled 2007 EP, The Virgins ’07, playing shows in both the US and Europe and making waves at this years SXSW Music Conference in Austin, Texas with their danceable indie rock, deft musicianship and clever vocals.

Coming over from the UK, rising British indie stars Switches bring high-energy Brit-pop to the lineup. After wrapping up a national tour with The Bravery and with their sophomore album (Lay Down The Law) just recently released, Switches have begun to pick up acclaim throughout the music community combining foot-stomping drums and bass with tight vocals and sharp guitar riffs. “These British indie rising stars have created another Brit Pop hit and are making confident future strides with their Switches Swagger.” (FILTER Magazine)
