Rock The Ink, the ultimate inked lifestyle event, makes it mark in Albuquerque for a three-day weekend of music, on-site tattooing, celebrity appearances and a host of contests and attractions including midget wrestling, the Miss Tattoo pageant, roller derby exhibitions, smokin’ after-parties, and much more. Rock The Ink is taking over the entire Albuquerque Convention Center with non-stop programming on 3 stages. The first Rock The Ink was held in Providence RI in October 2008 where 25,000 fans were in attendance.

There are 3 reserved slots for Sonicbids artists. Genres accepted include: alternative, goth, jam band, metal, punk, and rock. Artists must be available to play on any day of event and must buy 250 tickets at $10 a piece.

This is a rare opportunity to perform at a high visibility event that’s already made its mark in the northeast. Victory Records and Suburban Noize Records will be two of the sponsoring record companies at the event, with more to come. The record companies will be at the show looking for new talent to sign. Gain exposure and refine your performance in front of thousands of new fans and music industry insiders at a national event that redefines the live entertainment experience.

Just in case you missed it… here’s what the bands who played it said about Rock The Ink - Providence 2008:

The creator and producer of Rock The Ink is Paul Zukoski. A music industry veteran, Paul mounted and produced the ground breaking Tattoo The Earth tour in 2000. Fondly nicknamed the caravan of pain, Tattoo The Earth toured with more than 30 bands and over 50 top tattoo artists to 20 cities nationwide. The line up of amazing bands on Tattoo The Earth included Metallica, Stone Temple Pilots, Slipknot, Slayer, Sevendust, Sepultura and so on. And even though they were new on the scene, Paul recognized the talents of hed(pe) and Mudvayne (their first tour) and invited them on the show to be part of history.
