Los Abandoned Ice Cream Social Ticket and CD Giveaway
We don't know what you're doing on Sept. 11, but instead of sitting around a tv and making yourself depressed, how about going to a super fun show at the Troubadour and watch cool bands and eat free ice cream?
LA's own Los Abandoned, that quirky bilingual post-punk band you love so much is having their cd release party tomorrow night and the Ice Cream Man will be serving up the cold stuff and we want you to go! So here's a contest: One lucky winner will get two tickets to the show and the new cd!
To enter, send a haiku about the band or Ice Cream and the best haiku wins! So easy. The winner will be announced tomorrow at noon which makes the deadline 11:58am. Who else will be playing? So glad you asked: The Oolahs, Fairmona and The Sirens.
Send your haikus to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck!
