Contest: Win Wilco Tix with Chalk

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 11

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 #2 -- Take a picture of it.

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.
