"Less Than Jake" Ticket Give-A-Way Bonanza!

Posted by Stefan / September 18, 2008

LTJ Dennis Ho.jpg Everyone's favorite mid-90s ska-punk outfit Less Than Jake are coming to Club Soda on September 27th. What better way to see them than for free? The contest closes September 25th at 8:00pm. Best* answer wins the coveted 1st Prize: A pair of tickets, vinyl, and a CD. The 2nd Prize winner, no slouch, will make off with an LTJ tote bag and CD.

All you have to do is post on the comment wall with the answer to the question "Johnny Quest he thinks we’re what?” Of course, Less Than Jake wants you to say “sellouts”, but I know that our creative Midnight Poutine readership can do better! Think about the various ska-punk themes, and incorporate them into your answer for maximum effect.

Punk-friendly themes include malls, going to the mall, being at the mall, working at the mall, getting rejected by a girl at the mall, not getting rejected by a girl at the mall, buying new shoes at the mall, and Franz Fanon’s “The Wretched of the Earth”.

A sample answer might read, "Johnny Quest thinks we're loitering outside of Orange Julius, and he's right to think so."

*For the purposes of this contest, "best" means that which makes me laugh most irreverently.

Johnny Quest thinks we're confused about what Johnny Quest thinks we are.

Johnny Quest thinks we're hardcore, 'cause he saw our $25 mail-ordered "Skanking Pickle" patch badly sewed to our white cloth backpack, right below the blotted sharpie-drawn Op Ivy logo.

Johnny Quest thinks we're cheesing him but we listen to the punk rock and mullets never fade. Cartoon network anyone?

Johnny Quest thinks we're three quarts drunk, short on ideas, and ready to throw the brick into the liquor store.


(You know, the one on 9th at Pine)

Johnny Quest thinks we're turning hardcore with DIY piercings, homemade tattoos of our home state on our forearms, screaming incomprehensibly about UNITY/BROTHERHOOD during breakdowns and thrashing around like an epilepsy seizure patient.
What happened to the skank?

Johnny Quest thinks that we're getting a little too old to be playing music about pez and shopping malls because our dreadlocks keep falling out. But it's okay because the kidz still love us! (atleast our older albums, right?)

Johnny Quest thinks thinks were sellous because he thinks we sacrificed our morals, values or people close to us purely for personal gain.And he's calling us a sellout becuase we listen to too much punk rock music.
