We like free stuff. By ‘we’ we mean ‘Brits’, as a recently-published poll revealed. Sadly we’ve no DVDs to give away with our newspaper, nor are we offering any free texts to annoy your friends with, but we do have a few competitions on the burner that you’re welcome to dip a bit of bread on a stick into. Mmmm, taste our deliciously salty melty cheese goodness…
Firstly, let’s run through what’s currently up for grabs – like, existing competitions that you can yet be a part of. You can win a pretty-flipping-rare Eagles Of Death Metal seven-inch here. A hardly-one-of-a-kind (Colin and I own one) Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly t-shirt can be yours to treasure by clicking here.
Hey! Did we already mention our Reading Festival (hey, and Leeds Festival) competition? Yup, time and time and time again, but still: you might’ve missed it. It’s here, so frickin’ enter it already. The headliners are Muse, Pearl Jam and Franz Ferdinand. Fruity.
Reading and/or Leeds a bit too, y’know, hardcore for ya? Fancy something a little lighter on the ears, a little wimpier? Sorry, I digress: we’ve a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader for Dashboard Confessional’s lunchtime showcase gig at London’s Borderline venue on Wednesday August 23. The show starts at 1pm. Wanna go? Best e-mail editor AT drownedinsound DOT com ay es ay feckin’ pee hadn’t you? Please write ‘Dashboard competition’ in the subject line, and be sure to include a contact telephone number. We promise not to sell you double glazing at a later date.
More tickets for nothing? You betcha: we’ve a pair to give away for the Taste Of Iceland Airwaves show next month at London’s Kings College (KCLSU). The show’s on the evening of September 12, and features delightful Swedes Love Is All alongside Tilly And The Wall and Icelandic sensations Jakobinarina. More information on the actual Iceland Airwaves Festival can be found here. If you want the tickets to this ace London show, e-mail mike DOT diver AT drownedinsound DOT com with the subject line ‘Iceland is HOT, yo’. Include your telephone number, ta.
Finally – and most urgently – we’ve a pair of weekend tickets to offer one reader for this weekend’s Stylish Riots Weekender, held at 333 and Koko in London (more information here). There are plenty of fun bands appearing, including The Longcut and Pink Grease, so if you’re at a loose end this weekend, go party instead. Just e-mail editor AT drownedinsound DOT com with your contact telephone number, writing ‘Stylish Riots competition’ in the subject line.
No questions to answer – couldn’t be easier. Could it? Oh shut up and leave us to our fondue.
HAVE A NICE WEEKEND. WE WILL, THANKS FOR ASKING.
