We know, we know. You tried to buy tickets. But floor seats were gone in three minutes. Balcony seats not long after. Don't even look on Craigslist—you'll just get depressed.
Here's the good news: the Bohemian has two general-admission floor tickets to see Animal Collective at the Phoenix Theater in Petaluma on April 10. We're giving them away. They're yours. No strings. You just have to enter our contest, and win.
The rules are easy: You record a cover of an Animal Collective song and send the mp3 to us, we listen to it and select some finalists, and if you're picked as the best entry, you win two tickets to the show.
Entries must be received by March 30; one entry per person. Winner will be announced in our April 6 issue and on our Facebook page. One need not have a band to submit an entry, and in fact, we'll probably be charmed if you sing while playing on a typewriter and ketchup bottle or something. Entries will be judged not on how accurately the song is represented but by how much it tickles our fancy, so be creative.
Send your mp3 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
