Default A "Garage Tour" planned

From Toronto Star's interview @ SXSW

Tell me about this “garage tour” you have planned for Wasting Light.
Mendel: We’re still trying to figure it out, but we’re doing a little tour where it’s radio contests and people all in to win a chance to have us play in their garage. It’ll be funny and weird. Maybe we’ll show up and play 10 minutes or maybe it’ll turn into one of our two-and-a-half-hour shows. Who knows? It’ll be kinda fun.

You’ll give some kid the night of his life!
Shiflett: Or destroy his house. It’ll be a great story for him in years to come: “The Foo Fighters f---ing wrecked my house.”

Well, shit, guess I need to go buy a house with a garage. Preferably, a two car garage, more room for them to rock out.

LOL Re: A "Garage Tour" planned

This is deliberately excluding anyone who lives in an apartment/flat!

In case you haven't seen this, i don't see it posted in this thread, www.foofightersgaragetour.com

You can sign up to host or go. two different sign ups
I heard a promo on DC101. They are giving away all the spots to the show on the radio, though i would imagine if we can get borders to win the HOST spots, we could just all get to know them and be invited.

It's all sponsored by blackberry and the radio stations in each of those cities. I want to go to the DC date so bad. Please...someone on here win and invite me!! I live in an Apt. , so no garage. I'm thinking about taking a picture of the big ass storage areas and calling it a garage, though

Do you live in Texas?

There aren't any texas dates, so that would explain why...
