This past Friday night in Fayetteville, Arkansas The Meat Puppets kicked off the second leg of their 2011 U.S. tour at George’s Majestic Lounge.

What you may not know is that the Pups are holding contests for ticket holders in 6 of the 15 different cities (St.Louis, NYC, Teaneck(NJ), Boston, Chicago And Des Moines) they hit before year’s end, with giveaways of all sorts of cool stuff like:
Color vinyl LP’s of the new album ‘Lollipop’, exclusive tee shirts, and limited addition posters. The winners will be announced the night of the show, with prizes available at the Merchandise table, where if you so choose, can have your prizes signed by the band.
Entering the contest is simple as pie; Well, depending on what kind of pie you’re thinking about baking. Sometimes you can use the wrong pan or something , maybe not enough of that non-stick spray on stuff-it could really be a hassle. But this contest is FAR from a hassle.

All you have to do, is send an email over to .. that’s, with the city you’ll be seeing the band in the subject of the email. That is all you have to do, and expect a reply acknowledging your entry.
Now that’s what I call simple.

Jay Porks here.. I used to be a contributor on here. I\'m a little more than that now. This used to be the place I\'d go spill my rants and raves about artists and music I love and loathe. I still do that. But now I host a weekly podcast to get things off my chest, and since I have you here I\'m gonna tell you about it: Used to talk about fun things like music and pop culture, but these days it\'s all flushing the fascist crime syndicate from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave and taking back our country. A hostile foreign nation installed a corrupt racist rapist fake rich criminal to power and now he holds the nuclear codes. We have a lot of work to do to fix this nation and it starts with VOTING. Sometimes we go through the music headlines of the week along with other things I feel strongly about. Like ending Cannabis Prohibition, the sad state of affairs with the tri-state area sports teams, The struggles of an anti-social mess attempting to live in a social media world.
