Default It's A Contest Y'all For A Pair Of Austin Tickets - CONTEST CLOSED

I have ONE pair of tickets for the Austin Show. The kicker is, if you win tickets because you entered the random drawing, I want you to be a nice person and kick them back to me.

I only have one pair. And if it's like Nashville, I will have shit-load of people wanting them.

So, promise?! OK!

____________________________________


These is to see Foo Fighters in Austin, Texas as they screen the Austin Sonic Highways episode and then perform for an Austin City Limits TV taping!

1. You have to be able to be in Austin on Friday.
2. For the purposes of this contest, be at least 18 years of age.
3. A government issued photo ID


OK, so are we ready?! Wallright!


a. So, if you could have dinner with one band member, who would it be?
b. What would you go eat?
c. What kind of questions would you ask them?


Include your board username.

The more specific and interesting the more likely you are to win. Entertain me. I have to read all this shit. Email me at foofightersmessageboard@gmail.com.

The contest will be over Wednesday, November 5th at 3:30 Pacific which is 5:30pm Austin time and 6:30pm Eastern. I do it a day early so people can travel if they need to get on a plane.

KISSES and good luck!

Thanks for the opportunity! It was nice to take a moment and reflect on the band and what they mean to me, and imagine how not to come off as a total shlub if I ever met them. I felt like a sweaty-planed adolescent planning his first call to the girl he crushes on in middle school. It would be awkward, but a wonderful sort of awkward I'm certain.

Can't win, can't get there, so can't enter.

Can entertain Jill, so:

1) I'd go for dinner with Alex McCloud

2) We'd have a five course meal. The first four courses would be Balcones Single Malt Whiskey.
It's kinda good:

If a bit hard to find "The empty space is where Balcones Single Malt occasionally appears.":
http://blogs.houstonpress.com/eating...xas.php?page=4
but we are in the right place and he IS Alex McCloud so it will appear.
Can't skip desert... vanilla ice cream of course!

3) Kin nere looonga remberera anies kesttions Id herd.. tuns ta Alex... Yo man heree! ... whhopps no I meen hheer... shiirrtt! hehe ... dammmnit... kin ya plees lick mii spatula and sighhn eet? Coool bro - Yorn Rooond!

You are weird.
