CONTEST - Win A Pair of Vans Warped Tour Tickets

Posted by Jenny / July 2, 2008

It’s almost time for the summer’s best music festival – and no, we don’t mean Osheaga. The Vans Warped Tour is about to roll into town, bringing sandpits, sonic destruction, and something like 50 bands to Parc Jean Drapeau on July 20.

For the occasion, Midnight Poutine, in collaboration with the fine folks at Gillett Entertainment, are giving away two pairs of tickets for the show.

This year’s Montreal stop will feature everything from punk rock scene vets Pennywise to emo-rock darlings Jack’s Mannequin, to Christian rockers Anberlin and unnecessarily punctuated pop-punk rockers The Academy Is…, not to mention refreshing new female-fronted acts like Charlotte Sometimes, and that bi-curious chick Katy Perry, with bands from just about every other sub-genre of punk filling in the gaps.

With that little fad called emo still kickin’ it full-force, band names have been growing increasingly ridiculous by the minute. To land yourself a pair of tickets, all you need to do is make up the most tear-jerking band name you can using the following simple formula: Noun + Verb + Noun. (Examples: The Devil Wears Prada, Sky Eats Airplane, Love Equals Death, you get the picture.)

Once we’re done wiping the mascara off our cheeks, we’ll be announcing the winners. Make sure to include your name and an active e-mail address. Contest closes Saturday, July 5, midnight.

I'm aware that I'm not qualified for the prize (rats!), but I just wanted to share this. My sister used to make up names for my bands in high school when she was 5 years old. One of them was...

"Plane Crash Man"

Oh snap! What you think about that? She was so ahead of her time. She was emo at the age of 5 before emo even existed. Given that she does not reside in MTL, I will accept the spoils on her behalf.

The votes are in! Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to announce Lynn and Dave as the winners of a pair of Warped tickets each.

We love The Angels Reject You (I mean, seriously, ouch), and although we found no such scientific evidence on Wikipedia (THE authority on all scientific matters, obviously), Fungus is Fibre rocked our socks. So, congratulations. You'll be contacted by e-mail shortly.

Thanks to everybody for your entries; we definitely had a good laugh (and have now gone over our budget for makeup remover for the year to come, yay).
