Contest: Win Tickets to See Dashboard Confessional!

Once upon a time I was in Jr. High School and everyone I knew loved loved LOVED Dashboard Confessional. I mean, these guys were just massive, especially in my group of wannabe punk friends. And I can understand why, the singer is dreamy, the songs are catchy and the lyrics are dramatic. That’s probably why they’re still a successful touring band today. They really struck a chord with my generation.

That’s why I’m so excited that our friends from AEG Live offered us a pair of tickets to give away to their March 31st show at the Cannery Ballroom! You know, when Dashboard was at their biggest I would’ve been too young to see them there, but damnit, I’m old enough now, so watch out!

The steps for entering this contest are pretty standard. To be entered into our random drawing all you have to do is comment on this blog post. It’s so easy, you can even log onto our commenting system via Facebook or Twitter!

But, as usual, that’s not all. You can get yourself entered five more times by posting a photo to our Facebook wall. Not just any photo though! You see, Dashboard Confessional was the band that started the whole “emo” movement, so I want to see a picture of your emo moment. It can be an actual picture of you or it can be your face photoshopped onto the emo-est person of all time. As usual, if you make us laugh our asses off we might throw in even a few more points for ya.

Well, what are you waiting for? Enter thyself! I’ll announce a winner next Monday.

  • wouldn’t your adult self love it too?

  • toes too!

  • I’m not going to lie, I spent many nights crying to Dashboard Confessional because of some boy/life drama at the ripe old age of 16. Would love to see them live, they hold a dear place in my heart!

  • Kallie

    Definitely saw Dashboard when I was 17 and got in a fight with my best friend and ended up crying in a corner…

  • I would love nothing more than to win this contest. I saw Dashboard back in 2007 when he played at Morehead State University.

  • I would love to win these tickets. The Swiss Army Romance has so many gems on it. “Age Six Racer” and “The Sharp Hint of New Tears” are personal favorites. Plus, I submitted an embarrassing picture of myself wearing a My Chemical Romance shirt from years ago to the Facebook page. The tickets would make up for that rough time in my life. 😛
