Paid Dues On Tour

02:35 AM Tuesday 5/29/07 | |

Organizers of Southern California's Paid Dues underground hip-hop festival are so pleased with the success of last March's event, they've decided to take it on the road as the "Paid Dues" Independent Hip-Hop Festival.

Felt (featuring members of Living Legends and Atmosphere), Living Legends, Sage Francis, Brother Ali and Cage are just a few of the artists on tap for the tour. Mr. Lif, Grouch & Eligh, Hangar 18, Blueprint and Lucky I Am round out the bill.

The 13-date tour launches July 25 at the Congress Theater in Chicago and will make stops at variety of venues in major markets around the country, including First Avenue in Minneapolis (July 31-August 1), the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco (August 5), Red Rocks Amphitheater in Denver (August 7) and the Mesa Amphitheatre in Phoenix (August 10).

The tour will hook up with the Rock The Bells festival, which features headliners Rage Against The Machine and Wu-Tang Clan, in New York on July 28-29 and Los Angeles on August 11.

Living Legend's Murs, who's the mastermind behind Paid Dues, said taking the show on the road is what he envisioned for the event all along.

"The national touring of Paid Dues is a dream come true," Murs said. "It's what I had in mind when I first brought the idea to [festival producer] Guerilla Union - something like a Warped tour for underground hip-hop, where my friends and I could be outside in the daylight enjoying summer with our fans instead of cramped up in some dark, smelly nightclub worried about staying up too late and being too tired for work the next morning."
