LA Weekly Detour Festival Contest - Win More Tickets!
Before we announce the winner of yesterday's contest, we're proud to say that we have two more pairs of tickets to the LA Weekly festival starring Beck, Queens of the Stone Age, Redd Kross and others.
So congratulations aileen, you are the winner of the first pair, you will be rocking out on Saturday, October 7th in Downtown LA!
Since we have two more pairs to give away, post in the comments the two best places to eat in LA. The winners will be randomly selected so don't think that we will "judge" your favorite eateries.
If contests are your thing, you can still get tickets the old fashioned way, and the price is quite a value for all the music the Weekly is presenting.
This second contest ends midnight tonight and the winners will be announced tomorrow. So bonne chance! Complete list of bands after the jump.
Beck, Queens of the Stone Age, and Basement Jaxx with additional performances by Peeping Tom, Redd Kross, Blackalicious, Blonde Redhead, !!!, The Like, The Elected, OH NO! OH MY!, The Blood Arm, Everybody Else, The Howling Bells, Wired All Wrong. DJ sets by VHS or Beta, Steve Aoki, Shepard Fairey, and Travis Keller.
