CONTEST – From Black Lips To Your Ears

Atlanta’s Black Lips are staging a mini-invasion of Toronto this weekend, serving up their particular recipe of Southern-fried garage-punk no less than three times in the next few days, starting with an acoustic in-store at Criminal Records at 3PM 4PM 6PM tomorrow (Sunday the 23rd), a proper (read: loud and electrimafied) show at the Horseshoe that evening and finally an in-studio performance for MTV Live on Monday evening, all to support their spanking new record Good Bad Not Evil.

And while I don’t have tickets to give away – come on, two of those three shows are free (the in-store and the taping), courtesy of Vice Records Canada, I’ve got the next best thing (assuming that a CD, poster and earphones sit right next to free tickets in your personal hierarchy of “best things”). Specifically, a copy of the new album on CD, a pair of Sennheiser CX300 earphones and a Black Lips poster of some description for you to stare at while you listen to the CD on the earphones. Or anything, really. Your call.

I don’t have these particular earphones but do have a different kind of in-ear canal kinds and can and will vouch for the great sound quality from the design. Yeah, cramming these things way into your ear is kind of weird at first but you get used to it and as a bonus, if you wear them while eating, you can hear every single bone in your head moving. It’s fascinating. But I digress.

To enter the contest, email me at contests AT with “I want Black Lips on my ears” in the subject and your full name and mailing address before in the body 7PM EDT on Monday evening, which is when The Black Lips should be about wrapping up their MTV Live set and hitting the road to continue on their merry mission of bringing the rock to boys and girls across America. None of whom are eligible for this contest because it’s open to Canadians only. Har har.
