Free Mudhoney Tickets

Wow, check out that limited edition single. All the proof you need that Mudhoney's choice in cover songs was one of their best assets, for better or worse, but mostly for better. Anyway, we have three pairs of tickets to give away to the first person to send us a Youtube or Vimeo of yourself covering "Hate The Police" on an acoustic guitar. Just kidding, we know none of you are talented. Just send us an email with "Mudhoney" as the subject, along with your full name to weshotjrtix@yahoo.com, and we'll choose three winners randomly. Deadline is Thursday at Noon. Special thanks to the kind folks at Radio UTD and The Granada.

i don't think it could be any worse than Thomas Dolby trying to conduct synthesizers.

Why did you put "free tickets" in quotes? Are you debating the fact that they are tickets? Or the fact that they're free?

One time I saw this guy jogging down carrol blvd (is it a blvd?) with his short off and wearing a gas mask.

i'm debating the fact that it's a real giveaway. "free tickets" implies that anyone could in fact "win" free tickets and i used the quotations to note that they are not in fact free tickets to the average joe/jane. i don't deny that you get the tickets, i just think it's just to show that you guys are connected to promoters, which is fine. you have every right to promote your blog status and cred.
if i'm wrong i'm sure it will be a huge deal. so prove it. or not.

They are actually free tickets. And anyone can win them. We've long noticed people's reluctance to like free stuff, though...

so in fact you should have written "free" tickets, not "free tickets."
just sayin'

1:37, what are you talking about? if anything, getting tangled up with promoters is a way to detract from your cred. DUH.

Yeah, I don't think showing how "close" we are to promoters would do us much good around here. Thankfully, we aren't close with anyone-- people offer us free tickets to give away for promotional purposes, and if we like the band and/or think our readers like the band in question, then we give them away. Pretty simple.

there's a hater in the room. is someone "sour" for not winning? you sound like a bitch.

me offering wes hot jr a few tickets, doesnt mean we're 'connected'. They have offered tickets from granada, spune, utd, me, etc. why make an issue out of nothing? its a pretty standard practice for promoters/venues to offer free tickets to shows.

john

I think the guy with the gas mask, the dude in Austin with the puffy tail thong, and the dude that acts out all the Beatles songs at Hard Night's Day should have a race. I feel bad for saying that now because I like them

You won't find Hatesville on any maps
It's easy to get to
But you can't go by train, or plane, or car
You need a ticket to get there from here
And you're listening to that ticket this very minute, dad
A one-way ticket, first class

See, Hatesville exists partway between the heart and the mind
It's that place in the soul where hate dwells
And we're here the point the way

Why?
Because hate is groovy
Because it's fun
And it's necessary
And it lives inside you every second of every day

And you know what?
You need hate
And we need to let you hate, because we're your friends
And we want to see you happy, and healthy, and just a little bit angry

So don't hold back or hesitate
Sit back, smile, relax, and hate
Everyone needs a scapegoat
Everyone needs a whipping boy
When you find someone to hate
It fills your heart with joy

Mudhoney is boring grunge crap. It was kinda cool 17 years ago. Even then everyone knew that Nirvana blew the crap out of Mudhoney and that there was no point in buying Piece of Cake or Superfuzz Bigmuff because Incesticide kicked the living shit out of it. Let this be proof that wsjr is as played out as it could ever possibly be.

I do have to agree with one thing you said-- Incesticide DOES kick the living shit out of either of those albums, even though in fairness, its not really an album.

I can only imagine the stagehands wheeling the four members of Mudhoney out to do their big gig in Dallas. Sheesh. What a load of horse hockey.

Now if Steel Midget was opening I would be there front row. That singer with one leg is great.

Oh yeah, and I won tickets to a show on here and I don't even think these folks like what-little-they-DO-know about me so it's fair, fool!

And to the Mudhoney haters: You must be like 12. (Hah-ha, I'm old)

music is not a competition. this blog is a perfect picture of the music scene in this metroplex, a bunch of loudmouth, no taste, know nothings, talking loud and saying nothing. an unfunny joke.

Dearest 7:17 AM:

Music is NOT a competition; but talking about it seems to be.

As for me: Well I'm not really part of any "scene". Never have been and probably never will. I go to shows, I play shows, I talk about bands both local and international at an appropriate level of volume, I'm quite the madcap with the jokes and I have GREAT FUCKING TASTE in music.

You: Anonymous failed-musician? (Not that I don't agree with you)
