CONTEST: Ticket Giveaway for the Organized Konfusion/Poor Righteous Teachers NYC show at BB King's (week 3!)
Final week for the Ticket Giveaway for the first NYC show in over a decade by the legendary Organized Konfusion crew with opening support by the almost-as-legendary PRT (Poor Rightous Teachers) featuring Wise Intelligent!
Once again thanks to the good people at B.B. Kings / Highline Ballroom, we have been giving away a pair of tickets each week for the three weeks leading up to the Organized Konfusion/Poor Righteous Teachers show on Friday. Congrats to our week 1 contest winner, Terrance and our second week winner, Hugo. BTW: The correct answers to last week's contest question of who headed up the HollywodBASIC record label was: Dave Funkenklein. Learn more about this early hip hop music industry pioneer here.
For this, the third and final week of the contest giveaway, a winner will be selected from entrants correctly answering the following two questions:
1. What was the name of the artists who designed the cover of Organized's second album, Stress: The Extinction Agenda?
2. What was the main sample used to create the hit PRT song, "Rock Dis Funky Joint"?
Correct answers will be accepted by email, subject line: 'Organized Konfusion/Poor Righteous Teachers Ticket Contest'" until 11:59:59PM EST on Wednesday September 23. The winner will be notified by email.
Note: you must be able to make your own way to the show. NO transportation can or will be provided.
Here's some more fine print for prospective winners:
Upon arrival at the club, tables may be available; ask the host at the door if you would like to be seated. Please bear in mind that we cannot seat incomplete parties. Seating is not guaranteed. Please note that we enforce a ten dollar food or drink minimum for any seated guests. We always offer standing room space at our bar, without cover. We don’t reserve tables; please let me know if this affects your ability to attend the show.
Shows start promptly; BBKing's recommend arriving no less than thirty minutes prior to scheduled start time. Please bear in mind that if there is an opener on the bill, the opener will begin at the scheduled start time, not the lead act.
Like I said last week, cats been sleeping on these contests I've been putting up (although week 2 was better than week 1) so, if you're in the NYC area, ENTER THE CONTEST!!! Your odds of winning are actually pretty good, this is a fiya show and what have you got to lose either way?? So just do it! Good luck....
