Produced by Peter Shapiro and Relix Magazine, the event will be held simultaneously in New York City, Chicago and San Francisco April 20th to April 22nd, 2007.

Green Apple will feature performances from an eclectic group of artists in each city’s premier venues, from tastemaker hotspots like NYC’s Mercury Lounge, SF’s Bottom of the Hill and Chicago’s Empty Bottle to the esteemed Carnegie Hall.
