With another year under our belt, I just wanted to send out a huge Thank You to everyone who has supported this site during ’10,’11,’12 and hopefully ’13. Its been a crazy ride and wouldn’t be possible with out the readers and the amazing hard working interns.
We launched a beautiful new site. Helped ladies get jobs. Donated hundreds of bras to a wonderful Breast Cancer Awareness charity and survived the end of the world. Over all it was a great year!
Not to mention I finally got to meet some my lovely ladies! Shelby was doing her thing and kicking ass selling merch on tour. Steph was able to meet in New York for a fun quick little show. And Beth flew all the way from the UK to Baltimore for a weekend of serious dedication and love of her favorite band. Luckily enough I squeezed my way in there so I can say hello. Im still waiting for a time where I can meet Christina and Jess but I know we will soon enough! All of these ladies are beautiful and I wouldn’t be able to do it without them. So thank you!!
Best of wishes to everyone in 2013! Keep the emails coming and feel free to tell us your success stories of 2012!
We finally have a bra count from the All Time Low tour and donations made by those loyal fans. Even though we started a few weeks into their tour, the fans still managed to go over and beyond our expectations! Took us a while but we went through all of them and got a final count of… 563!

As you all know, October is known for its chilly weather, Starbucks Pumpkin Lattes and most importantly Breast Cancer Awareness. Whether we like it or not, everyone is impacted by the cancer and unfortunately theres not much we can do except fight for our loved ones. Even though we are well on our way into November, it doesn’t mean we have to stop fighting for a cure.
Donating time and money can be hard at times but heres a different way to donate while having a great time. Read more »

A Note from Christina: I’ve been working with RBR since the beginning of 2011, and it’s easily one of the best things to ever happen to me. I’ve met so many amazing people, made a ton of great connections and worked with a lot of cool artists. The people at RBR are some of the nicest and most helpful I’ve ever worked with. If you meet the criteria, I highly suggest you apply! Read more »
Milwaukee is a great city for music. Between Summerfest, Turner/Pabst/Riverside concert venues and the Rave, there is always something going on. However, sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone and experience new things. That’s why when I was given the opportunity to move to LA for the summer and intern for Red Bull Records, I jumped at the chance.
Ill be posting updates every week from the road and this time I’m sending love from Atlanta!
Currently sitting in the hotel lobby going over travel arrangements and realized I haven’t shared my experience with the IATTG family. So heres a little run down of the past week.
I flew into Detroit to start the tour and was greeted by a nice limo driver holding a paper with Ritz on it. Never thought I’d see the day that happened but it was nice none the less. I instantly got a good feeling about this tour. We had a few days off before our first show so they put the crew up at the MotorCity Casino. I don’t gamble but it was still cool to be staying at a casino… aka its perfect for people watching. Ended up getting the biggest turkey sandwich from there so I was a happy camper. ( I could eat turkey sandwiches the rest of my life for every meal and be satisfied). But anyway it was a great few days and was stoked to start working.
A few months back I heard about an opportunity to help merch at a date on a national tour. I knew nothing about the tour itself or the tour manager I’d be working with. There wasn’t even a stop in my market, but I was determined to make it happen. So, I revamped my resume, sent an email to the still-unknown TM expressing my interest and made early travel plans down to Chicago.
That’s when I met Heather Sorrenty.
After a few emails and tweets back and forth – and upon finding out we had a mutual friend in IATTG’s own Steph Ramirez – I was all set up to volunteer for Heather at the Dial Up Tour.
Since then, Heather has been one of my biggest mentors. While we haven’t been able to meet up since, I know I can always contact her when I need advice or just need to talk. That’s why I immediately thought of her to feature as one of our Spotlights.
Heather works with Keep-a-Breast and has toured on the Honda Civic Tour featuring Blink 182, All Time Low’s Dirty Work Tour, the Fire and Ice tour and this year’s Mayhem Festival, plus many more.
Not to mention she loves cats, boy bands and thrifting (aka, we’re practically the same person).
I interviewed Heather about how she got started in the industry and her time on the road. Check out the Spotlights tab on the top of the page to see Heather’s interview as well as all of the other ladies featured on the site!
Incase you haven’t heard, one of our fellow Ladies in the touring world needs a helping hand. Beth Raebel has been slingin merch for years now. A full on veteran to the game. Im sure you’ve bought a shirt from her with Motion City Soundtrack or even Hey Monday on it. But now its our turn to give back and help out.
A few months ago, Beth got extremely hurt in a motorcycle accident. Thankfully she survived but is now facing crazy medical bills.
Her touring family MCS has put out a shirt with Shirts For A Cure in her honor to raise money. I know she’s met a lot of fans and would appreciate the help…think of it as a massive tip jar!
Every dollar helps! Please do what you can!
