Tonight in Fayetteville, Arkansas The Meat Puppets will be kicking off the second leg of their 2011 U.S. tour at George's Majestic Lounge.
What you may not know is that the Pups are holding contests for ticket holders in 5 of the 15 different cities (NYC, Teaneck(NJ), Boston, Chicago And Des Moines) they hit before year's end, with giveaways of all sorts of cool stuff like:
Color vinyl LP's of the new album 'Lollipop', exclusive tee shirts, and limited addition posters. The winners will be announced the night of the show, with prizes available at the Merchandise table, where if you so choose, can have your prizes signed by the band.
Entering the contest is simple as pie; Well, depending on what kind of pie you're thinking about baking. Sometimes you can use the wrong pan or something , maybe not enough of that non-stick spray on stuff-it could really be a hassle. But this contest is FAR from a hassle.
All you have to do, is send an email over to MeatPuppets007@gmail.com .. that's MeatPuppets007@gmail.com, with the city you'll be seeing the band in the subject of the email. That is all you have to do, and expect a reply acknowledging your entry.
Now that's what I call simple.
