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!

    I may go gay for soundgarden now. Couldn’t give ’em time of day in college, but now I love ’em. Audioslave sucks ass – SG rules
