Important contest update…
First off, people really win at Stereogum.com. Congrats to:
OK, now here’s the important part. Remember the contest for the Outkast-loaded iPod and tix to the Idlewild advance screening? We made a database typo and all the entries got lost somewhere in this vast series of tubes. I’m sorry, I know that sucks. You took the time to fill out the form and everything. And the movie is TOMORROW. So we’re gonna break this baby into two separate giveaways.
1. If you want the 30Gig video iPod loaded with every Outkast album (including Idlewild), every Outkast video, and exclusive clips from the Idlewild movie, ENTER HERE by Tuesday, August 29 @ noon EST.. Three runners-up win the Idlewild CD and some limited-edition vinyl promos. This contest is open to anyone in the US or Canada.
2. If you want to attend an advance screening of Idlewild tomorrow night in NYC, and a post-movie album listening party at a club TBA, POST “I WANNA GO” IN THE COMMENTS BY 5 PM EST TODAY. We’ll pick a winner randomly and e-mail you shortly after 5 (so use your real e-mail!). You must be 21+ because the listening party is 21+. And obviously you have to live in the NYC-area or be able to be here tomorrow night.
All the Outkast stuff comes courtesy of Andre, Big Boi, and Volkswagen!
Finally, as for the Guitar Center Spin Off, we didn’t fuck up the database for that one (yay!), so this is just a reminder that you have two more days to enter…
Guitar Center’s Spin Off, America’s premier DJ/turntable competition, presents its Grand Finals 9/1 at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. There will be performances by Peanut Butter Wolf, Madlib, J Rocc, A-Trak, and the six illest battle DJs in the nation.
Stereogum’s celebrating by giving away a $250 Guitar Center Giftcard, Technics SL-1200 MKII turnables, and Technics headphones. This contest is open to international readers.
Enter to win by Thursday, August 24 @ noon EST.
THESE CONTESTS ARE OVER. WINNERS HAVE BEEN CONTACTED. THANKS!
Contests coming up: Virgin Festival tickets, Halloween costumes designed by indie rockers, and more! Stay tuned.
