The other day some fine folks at Commodore Quake approached us. They said “would you like to do a contest to give away My Morning Jacket tickets for their show on October 20th at Vanderbilt’s Memorial Gymnasium?” Our response was a solid HECK YES!
Even if you only know MMJ from Guitar Hero then you probably know that these dudes rock. They play epic shows and are especially famous for their 4 hour late night rainy set at Bonnaroo in 2008. They are modern rock gods despite their lack of radio support. And that is why we’re so pumped to bring you all this contest.
Here’s how to enter: to get one measly drop of your name in the hat then comment on this blog post telling us your favorite MMJ moment but please don’t beg (it’s unbecoming of a rock fan) using your real name. Sorry DragonLuver81, you are not going to win this contest unless you tell everyone that your real name is Eugene Greer. Also, if you don’t sign up through FB or Twitter make sure your email address is valid.
But this wouldn’t be a N4F contest without a bonus step! To get your named dropped into the proverbial hat five extra times then post a picture on our Facebook wall of you enjoying some glowsticks. Why glowsticks? Well, I’ve seen MMJ a few times and each time people throw freaking glowsticks EVERYWHERE. It’s AWESOME. Don’t have any glowsticks? That’s what Photoshop and Paint are for. Remember, you’re promised an extra five entries, but if you make us double over in laughter chances are we’ll toss your name in that hat a few extra times. Seriously, people who do this step win 90% of the time. It’s basic math, people.
I’ll announce a winner next Monday evening, October the 10th. Get cracking, people! MMJ awaits!!!
