Just like the Dropkick Murphys before them, Wilco will rock LeLacheur Park (home of the Lowell Spinners) in July. They're doing a mini-tour of minor league stadiums that includes a stop in Delaware and a couple gigs in New York.
Who cares why it's happening, but the band is holding a "Sidewalk Chalk Graffiti Contest" to win a pair of tickets to one of the shows. A grand prize winner gets 2 tix to all 4 concerts.
Here is the deal:
Step #1 -- Create a chalk drawing on a sidewalk with the details (date, location) of one of the 4 shows. Here's all the info I've gathered about the Lowell show:
Saturday, July 11Step #2 -- Take a picture of it.
Wilco w/ Conor Oberst & the Mystic Valley Band
at LeLacheur Park
450 Aiken St, Lowell
Gates -- 5:30pm, Show -- 7pm
All Ages. Rain or Shine.
$40 / $36 advance / Children 8 & Under Admitted Free
General Admission seating
(All You Can Eat Barbecue Picnic from 5:30pm to 7:30pm available for $25)
Step #3 -- Send it in. You can email it (maximum file size: 1MB) or add it to the Flickr Contest Pool.
Note: Entries to be judged on their creativity and informativeness.
You have a good chance to win, if you're reading this!
I know there are a lot of creative people out there, but I have the feeling there may not even be a lot of entries.
It may have been difficult to find, but there are currently no images in the Flickr contest pool. Could I find any entries via Google Image Search? No...
Give it a shot! There's an example of something like this at the top. You can lie down next to the drawing for this effect.
Think about it, you potential Sidewalk Sam's -- Free Wilco concert tickets! Maybe 4 pairs of tickets! Get creative and sell them if you must.
If the forecast is correct, there might be a chance to create an entry in the next couple days...
The submission deadline is TUES 6/30.
