Like free stuff?
If not, stop reading this right now.
OK, here’s the deal, people of the night:
What if I told you that you could take a friend (or enemy, or anyone really, so long as they’re legal) to every upcoming show at The Granada in Lawrence… FOR FREE!!?
What if I told you that you’d be seeing William Elliott Whitmore, Railroad Earth, Stephen Malkmus, Blind Pilot, The Head and the Heart, Rachael Yamagata, M83, and Robert Earl Keen just to name a few. And there’s like 30 more.
Well, first off, if you only recognize, maybe, two of those names, punish yourself right now. Go ahead, I’ll wait. You need to get with the program because you’ve been missing out on some seriously good music.
Here’s how to get the free stuff, but you only have until Monday to cash in…
The Granada is running a contest to see who can tweet the most creative picture that involves the poster featured in this article that has all the bands listed (the poster is also in the University Daily Kansan for those without printing access).
A couple things you have to do to enter:
1. "Like" The Granada on Facebook
2. Follow The Granada on Twitter (@thegranada)
3. Tweet a creative picture that involves the poster and tag @thegranada.
I’ve been told that special props might go to anyone who can get a pic with the poster inside Allen Field House. Maybe with the poster stuck to the backboard, or pinned like a "kick me" sign on Bill Self’s back.
Or, just tweak the poster using some crazy app or something. Either way, they’re looking for something CREATIVE.
If you win you get two tix to every show from now thru May.
Second place is two tickets per month thru May.
And third gets a big ol’ slap in the tits. Just kidding. Third gets one pair of tickets for the show of your choice.
There you have it KCC Nation. See you at the Granada.
P.S. I’ll be there tonight for Dr. Dog, can’t wait. Come buy me a beer.
