Death Cab For Cutie, Anya Marina Sign On For "New Moon" Shows

October 30, 2009 1:53 PM ET

Several bands featured on the New Moon soundtrack will perform at Hot Topic stores around the country in support of the release of the Twilight sequel, which arrives in theaters November 20th. Death Cab For Cutie, whose "Meet Me on the Equinox" was New Moon's lead single, will perform alongside RS Breaking act Band of Skulls, Sea Wolf and Anya Marina at a kickoff event at the Hot Topic in Hollywood, California, Hot Topic's sister site ShockHound announced.

In addition to the bands, each mall stop will also feature a Q&A with some of the actors and actresses involved in New Moon. In case you were planning on camping out starting today, we should tell you that no one with the last name of Pattinson, Lautner or Stewart is involved in this tour, nor does it feature some guy named Yorke. Instead, Anya Marina and the Hurricane Bells will travel cross-country with the cast.

A similar event is reportedly in the works for New York's Times Square Hot Topic on November 19th, the day before New Moon opens, but so far there's no additional details on that show. Dates, mall locations and appearance details for all confirmed events are below:

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
