Let me tell ya something, the folks at AEG Live sure do know how to treat a blog. They seem to really like doing contests with us and I’ve enjoyed every single one we’ve had. As you might have heard, we hit 10,000 followers on Twitter yesterday and though I was going to save this contest for next week I’ve decided to roll it out to you all immediately.
But I digress, back to the contest. If you’ve been following us for awhile then you’ll know that it’s really simple to enter our contests. All you have to do is comment on this blog post with your favorite Arctic Monkey’s lyric. Or just a lyric. Just don’t beg me for tickets, because didn’t anyone tell you that begging is unbecoming of a person? It totally is. Arctic Monkeys, those awesome indie rockers, are coming to the War Memorial Auditorium on October 5th (with the most excellent Smith Westerns), and AEG Live has bestowed on us not just a pair of tickets, but a super-sweet poster of the show to give away! Aren’t they great? You should follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
Commenting will get your name thrown into our proverbial hat. However, if you REALLY want those tickets there is a way to stack the deck in your favor. All you have to do is post a picture on our Facebook wall of you going monkey for the camera. You can pose like a monkey, scratch your head while eating a banana. Hell, if you really want you could photoshop your head onto a monkey on an iceberg. And if you really make us laugh we might even put your name in there a few more times. We’ve been doing our contests like this for awhile now, and FYI, the winner is almost always someone who did this bonus step. Think about THAT ya’ll.
I’m going to give you until Monday evening to get yourself entered, which should be plenty of time to get yourself entered properly. Best of luck to all of you and THANK YOU for your support over the years. You all rock. So do the Arctic Monkeys. So enter this contest. Word.
