Looking for a way to rock out for free?  Well if you live in the Columbus area you are in luck…

The Event:

Scion Rock Fest – Columbus, OH – 03/13/2010

The Bands:


That’s a lot of metal bands.  I myself am most excited for the chance to see D.R.I., 3 Inches Of Blood, and Pelican.  I’ll be trying my best to make it out there for the event.

The shows will be held at the following locations throughout High Street:

1227 N. High St
Columbus, OH 43201

Newport Music Hall:
1722 N. High St.
Columbus, OH 43201
All Ages

1151 N. High St
Columbus, OH 43201

Bernie’s Distillery:
1896 N. High St.
Columbus, OH 43201

So how do you get your tickets to this free event you ask?  You can RSVP by 02/15/2010 or you can post a comment on this here blog and I will choose one winner and give them a pair of tickets I have acquired thanks to Revolver Magazine.  My only rule for this contest of sorts is that you are over the age of 18 and actually plan on attending.

I read the FAQ on the Scion Rock Fest site and there is something there that states “entry is not guaranteed” and I am thinking that is for the folk who did not get tickets or their name put on a roll call.

I’ll pick a winner on 02/20/2010.  Don’t forget to enter your email address!

Heads Up: Cleveland’s A Plum Shirt / Contest

One of my favorite pro-Cleveland bloggers has got something to brag about and she can do all the bragging she wants.  Recently Alexa from Cleveland’s A Plum teamed up with the fine folk at C.L.E. Clothing Co. to create this:


That right there is the coolest thing I have seen all day.  Good for for her.  If you are interested in grabbing one of these amazing shirts head over to the C.L.E. Clothing Co.’s website.  Who knows how long they will last.

Better yet head over to Cleveland’s A Plum and enter to win 1 of 3 shirts!

All you have to do is one of three things and I promise you they are all legal…

1. Leave a comment telling her why Cleveland’s a plum.
2. Leave a comment telling her what fruit your city would be.
3. For a second entry: tweet (Twitter) about her giveaway and comment again with a link to your tweet (make sure you comment with the link so she can keep track, I myself did not because I forgot…oops)

She will pick 3 winners and those winners will be proud owners of a brand spanking new Cleveland’s A Plum shirt!  What do you have to lose?  Nothing!  Do it!

You should also check out the rest of the site too.  It is pretty damn awesome.

I only wish I could get a shirt made by C.L.E. Clothing Co…  Wishful thinking.  Until that happens support your local bloggers like Alexa at Cleveland’s A Plum who love this city and pick up one of her shirts.  You should also check the rest of C.L.E. Clothing Co.’s inventory too.  There are some bad ass shirts on their site including these:

Contest: Turn Signals Are Used For…

UPDATE:  Concert ended on 03/18/2009.  Thank you to all who entered!!!!

Well I think today is a good day to start a contest.  FREE STUFF.  Keep reading…

Recently I was given some copies of the new Fountains Of Wayne live DVD for a giveaway of sorts thanks to my friends at The Syndicate.  I tried thinking of some witty contest to have people enter to win one.

Before I do that though I just wanted to talk about Fountains Of Wayne for a moment…  I know I know…bare with me.  Free stuff soon.

“Stacy’s Mom” is indeed the song that Fountains Of Wayne will be labeled with forever.  As amusing as the video was for the song I never cared for it and regretfully assumed that all other material that this band created sounded just like that song.  I wanted nothing to so with it so I never looked into their catalog.

I missed out.

In 2007 I attended the Virgin Mobile Festival with my pals Matt and ((RAD))am.  Matt kept talking about wanting to see the Fountains Of Wayne set and I thought he was joking or had a guilty pleasure I was not aware of.  I mean, Matt is a huge music lover and all, but a pop punk band?  Matt proceeded to correct my judgement of the band and told me to at least give them a shot.

I checked them out and loved them.  I was so missing out on this band and could not believe how great they were.  Why do I keep judging bands based off of one song?  Because that is how I am.  I’ll try anything once and usually it is the first taste that is a deal-breaker or not.  If not I have the tendency of spitting that initial taste out and never returning to it.  Fountains Of Wayne, I apologize.  You all taste just fine.

Win a copy of this DVD - See below for details
Win a copy of this DVD - See below for details on how this can happen...

So recently a Fountains Of Wayne DVD was released through Shout Factory Records called No Better Place: Live In Chicago.  This is the band’s first DVD to be released and features 80 minutes of live footage including live performances and even some extra goodies in there.  The concert was shot in front of a live audience in Chicago and was even recorded in 5.1 Surround.

So are you still hanging in there trying to figure out when I am going to tell you how you can win a copy?

I’ll tell you in a second…maybe…as in….right now.

Ok, I have 3 copies of this DVD for giveaway.  I could be easy and just say the first three people to comment get one but that is not far for people who may be away from the internet or who were too tired to read all the way to this point.

So here is the contest:

I have pet peeves.  I have a lot of them.  I can’t stand it when people do not use their turn signals while driving, it drives me mad (no pun intended).  I can not have the tag of a blanket be near my face when sleeping.  I hate when people type your and mean you’re… The list continues.  Enough about me though.  What about you?

I want to know one of your most random weird pet peeves of yours.

Post a comment with your submission and do not forget to enter a valid email where it asks you to so I can contact you should I find yours hilarious.  Once a winner is chosen I will email you for shipping info and boo ya, you have a Fountains Of Wayne DVD.  This contest starts now and will end on 03/18/2009.  Ready. Set. Go!
