Veteran ska punk band Less Than Jake are hitting the road early in 2011 for a hefty month long tour that will bring them to the Triangle.
They will play the Motorco Music Hall in Durham on Friday, January 21. Punknews.org is reporting that the show is part of a two-day festival on January 21 and 22 at Motorco called Death To False Hope Fest, named after the Durham-based DIY label who is celebrating their second anniversary.
Pre-sale tickets are available now for Less Than Jake's night headlining the show here for $34.95, which includes a signed poster. There are other more expensive pre-sale packages, too, which include various other extra goodies. There's no word yet on standard ticket sales for the festival other than they're supposed to go on sale on November 8.
[UPDATE: Tickets for the first night of the Death of False metal anniversary are available now here for $27.37 (which includes fees).]
Other bands reported to be playing the festival are Off With Their Heads, The Supervillians, Restorations, Riot Before, Spanish Gamble, Greenland is Melting, Blackbirds, Captain We're Sinking, Mixtapes, Kadets, The Working Dead, Direct Hit! Red Collar, Hammer No More The Fingers, Last Years Men, lurch and Rain Over Battle. We'll bring you more details about the festival once they're announced.
