Giveaway Spectacular has begun! Today’s giveaway is for Day 1 of In & Out Fest.
Here’s how it works… After you finish daydreaming about riding sweet waves with Mikal Cronin & Tiny Ty Segall, write us a haiku about your favorite Gonerfest experience. The better the haiku, the better the prize. Yes, I said haiku. For example
Got so drunk I puked,
Guitar Wolf is going on,
Must keep partying…
1st Place: 2 Free tickets to Day 1 of In & Out Fest!
2nd Place: In & Out Festival t-shirt! They look tough as hell.
3rd Place: In & Out Festival Day 1 poster. So pretty.
Leave your haiku in the comments, and we’ll announce the winner tomorrow!
