Solid Sound contest

solid sound posterThe Solid Sound Festival, the three day festival at MASS MoCA "curated" by Wilco, is coming up the weekend of August 13. Tickets are $91 for all three days. But here's a way you might be able to score a free pass. From the promoters:

"Wilco has announced the return of their semi-regular photo contest. 1st round begins now through July 7 and is open to any quality photographs with the theme "Summer + throwing in a little Wilco can't hurt." A group of 15 finalists will be selected and posted on the Solid Sound website on July 11 for final round democratic voting, July 13-19. Winners will be announced shortly after voting closes. Prizes range from shirts & mugs to weekend Solid Sound Festival passes + hotel.

The lineup for Solid Sound includes Wilco (of course) and bunch of other musical acts, plus other performers such as comedian Kristen Schaal.

Dear friends of mine that are super into photography,

Please do this, win, and bring me.

Thanks.

@lola: the lineup isn't *that* hot. Is it? Dude, Kristen Schaal lives in *your house*.

At least they allow you to "retain all intellectual property rights"... besides "granting an irrevocable perpetual, nonexclusive license to Authorized Parties, to reproduce, distribute and display [...] in any media now or hereafter known, including, but not limited to [...] etc.". And your first born as usual.

@-S, you know me oh too well. I wouldn't really go with you if you won, I'm just acting cool for the world of the interwebz. I can't get into Wilco at all.

Well, my initial idea was a photo of throwing a Wilco album into a lake. So I think that kind of dovetails with you not being able to get into them, in a way.

I hoping this becomes an annual event... Wilco will eventually run out of side-project bands to book and the concert could become much more diverse ;)

I'd love to see The Books... but not for 91 bucks.

Re: The Books. Why are there so many expensive festivals this year, and why is every band I want to see playing at them, instead of at regular shows that I would gladly pay to see?

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

Very nice redesigns. I hope that area becomes more of a neighborhood rather than what it currently is - still an expressway that happens to have hotels and apartments along it. I'd love to see wide sidewalks and protected bike lanes from Crossgates all the way to Manning.
