GrungeReport.net is giving away one free mezzanine ticket to Soundgarden’s show on Saturday February 16th at the Wiltern in Los Angeles, California. The ticket is courtesy of reader Joseph Thomas (who also donated to help us purchase AlternativeNation.net, we will be changing our name to AlternativeNation.net in early March, it was pushed back because it has taken time building the new layout). Soundgarden are playing three shows at the intimate Wiltern this weekend to wrap up their winter King Animal tour. We’ve had lotteries before giving away prizes, and Twitter/Facebook contests, but I thought this time we would focus on the comments section. Why do you think you deserve the ticket, why is Soundgarden one of your favorite bands? Be creative (your Soundgarden story, maybe even photos) and leave a comment in the comments section explaining why, make sure when you are commenting when it asks for your e-mail you put a valid one, because the winner will be contacted via that e-mail, and if the e-mail isn’t valid somebody else will win. Also note that the winner must be willing to show up a few hours prior to showtime, because they will be given the ticket in line. If you show up late/after doors have opened you are shit out of luck. The contest ends tonight (Thursday) at 9PM Pacific time and the winner will be announced tomorrow. For those wondering, I will be attending Saturday’s show.
