Yes, there’s a contest to win two tickets to see Beck in Bend going on as we speak.
But why give away two tickets when you can give away four?
Today, I need to get rid of two tickets to see indie-pop-rock powerhouse The Shins on May 25 at Les Schwab Amphitheater, along with an outstanding pair of openers: Blind Pilot and The Head and the Heart.
Want ‘em? Simple: Just leave a comment on this blog post telling me how The Shins have changed your life. (Don’t get it? Watch this.)
Now, you can, of course, relay a true story of how The Shins have changed your life, if indeed they have. But if they haven’t, you should definitely make something up. Maybe the band’s music was playing when you decided to propose to your spouse. Or a particularly vigorous performance of “Know Your Onion!” inspired you to ditch your job as a bloodthirsty bounty hunter and instead become a chef.
Perhaps James Mercer dumped you in high school and you have hated beards ever since. Or what about that time you were stepping out into the street and former Shins drummer Jesse Sandoval snagged your belt loop with his drumstick and pulled you back onto the sidewalk just as a bus whizzed past?
Whatever. Anything goes, and the funnier and/or more outlandish, the better. Just keep it clean; I can’t publish comments that contain dirty words or other inappropriate stuff.
Tell me about your life-altering Shins experience in the comments by Saturday at 5 p.m., and be sure to leave your real email address so I can contact the winner!
Oh, and does that sound like too much work? Well you can always buy tickets through the Les Schwab Amphitheater’s website.
