Posted by gregor on Wednesday, February 8th, 2012

hey new orleans! these two fine people – one finer than the other, lydia loveless and scott h biram, are playing at one eyed jacks on friday, and you can grab a pair of tickets if you want to go to the show. how do you win said ticket, you ask? just leave a comment and ill pick one. i wish i could go, cause i hear both are amazing performers, but sadly i am stuck in baton rouge. doors open at 9, tickets are 12 bucks and its an 18 and older show. its a bloodshot records bonanza!

morning. firstly, ticket network dot com is running a contest for the next two days that if you are the winner you will be able to see any show that you want. whats you gots to do is hit this link, leave a comment about why you must be at your show of choice, and if you are chosen then hey guess what? if they get a 100 entries they’re also throwing in a $100 gift card to a local restaurant or a $100 ticket network gift card. honestly your chances may be good cause they dont have many entries at this point. what you got to lose?

Secondly, you have probably already heard all about this over the internets, but mr scott bondy is releasing a new record on sept 13 via fat possum entitled believers. this is probably my 3rd or 4th most anticipated record of the year, and judging by the song below, i reckon its gonna be a good’un.

those darlins live at one eyed jacks, 6.5, win a pair of tickets

Posted by gregor on Friday, June 3rd, 2011

howdy, peoples! hey, who wants to go see the ladies, and one dude, of those darlins on sunday night at one eyed jacks for free? did i just say for free? sure as hell did dear reader! anyway, just leave a comment below stating you want to go, and ill have my 6 year old pick one of the comments randomly. if you havent heard their latest release, screws get loose, dang you be missing out. i liked their debut, notice i said “liked,” not love or something other lame term of endearment, but i am really loving the new one. or at very least seriously contemplating loving it. still, its definitely a step forward in the right direction and more cohesive and solid collection of songs but without losing what makes them who they are.

amazons got screws get loose for a lousy 5.99. definitely worth the investment.

btw, doors open at 9, i believe, and check the one eyed jacks site for exact ticket prices if you dont win.

EDIT: forgot to mention contest ends tomorrow night at 10 pm central standard time… good luck

EDIT PART DOS: firstly, the 6 year old is a boy, and named mac. secondly, if you can successfully guess who he’s named after you win a pair of tickets. thirdly, i have another pair to give away, so two pairs all day.

wild one

soundgarden reunion tour and you: contest

Posted by gregor on Friday, May 27th, 2011

top of the evening! back in i think 2000, i won a contest to meet and film the tragically hip at the uic pavilion in chicago. it was one of the coolest moments of my life, at that point. i got to meet the band, eat their food, drink their beer, tape their show and write a review of said show. me thinks it was called “hip fans at work” i may be wrong though. either way, soundgarden, a band i have loved since about since 1990, or the first time i heard louder than love is putting on a contest much like the tragically hip one i mentioned up there. now, i dont know if youre gonna be able to meet the band, drink their beer, eat their food, etc but i do know that you will be able to photograph them in their natural environment, the stage. this is their first tour 13 years, and too be honest thats about 12 years too long. they will be picking one photog for each of their 17 tour dates. sadly, they are not hitting up new orleans or i would be all over this. check the info up there for rules, regs, etc…. good luck to everyone. you only have until june 5 to submit your stuff. so get on it!

ticket giveaway: adam haworth stephens and the felice bros at one eyed jacks, tomorrow night

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

hey howdy hi! wanna see adam haworth stephens (two gallants) and the felice brothers live at one eyed jacks tomorrow night? you do? awesome! just leave a comment, by 8 am cst tomorrow, and i will randomly select a person to win said pair of tickets. for those that may be unaware, mr stephens released his solo record, we live on cliffs, back in sept, and for some reason totally flew under my radar. this coming from a guy thats pretty fond of two gallants. still, havent heard the record, but i can only expect great things. even with the felice brothers still being on my shitlist, this should be one helluva show. also, so there is no confusion, please state that you would like to go to the show, not just “hey this sounds awesome,” which then leads to confusion, mostly cause im dumb.

buy we live on cliffs via amazon or the saddle creek store.

time to sweeten the deal, kind of

Posted by gregor on Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

firstly, thanks so much to everyone who has donated thus far. i cant thank you all enough, you should have received an email from me, but if you havent, its coming. secondly, to sweeten the pot and help me reach my goal of almost one year of hosting paid, i am going to offer up two items to be raffled off of sorts. the first being 50 cds, of your choosing. i will give you a list of what i have, and you get to pick em. some of em may not have cases but ill make sure they are properly encased. the second one, is gonna be a surprise, but you may dig it esp if you are a musician. to be entered, all i am asking is for a donation of 5 bucks or more. everyone who’s already donated is already entered regardless of dollar amount. just use paypal button over there to the right. one caveat, i am closing donations as of 8.10 and if i dont get it, then the two prizes go out the window, but if i will send some folks some nice stuff regardless….

now you may ask yourself, why the hell is he doing this? well, one reason is that i love this site, and i dont want to see it go away in the event of advertising revenues sinking even lower. i just dont want anything to happen to it for the foreseeable future. thats really it. and all monies raised thus far has gone directly to paying my hosting bill, fyi.

also remember you still have access to all my backlog files. which you can gain access to by clicking here. again, xoxoxo to all of you.

ben bridwell hearts yer cronies

Posted by gregor on Friday, January 16th, 2009

yercronies_trash

hey, want to win tix for two to coachella? all ya have to do is visit this link, which will take you to causecast dot org, sign up – which is free, and answer some questions to their inauguration quiz. sounds simple enough, i suppose. i havent participated, as of yet, but definitely plan on it…

i am still making up my mind on minny’s yer cronies and their record when i grow up. i am staying with em cause  of this quote by mr ben rbidwell of band of horses:

“Upon my seeing my first Yer Cronies show I was convinced that this was the best new band in Minneapolis. Now finally getting to hear the record, I’m convinced they’re one of the best new bands anywhere. I love the way this sounds.”

there’s definitely something here that’s kept my interest, but there’s also something holdin back my love. as you may or may not be surprised by they kind of, at least musically, remind me of band of horses but with a flair for jazzy riffs, and throw in some fleet foxes for good measure. sounds like it should be a gay ol time, and it is, mostly, i think…
