Update, 12:48 p.m., Saturday: We've picked our two winners, so congrats to commenting Backbeat readers J Hamby and Wratha, they're going to see Green Day and AFI tonight.
Faithful Backbeat readers, because you kill time 'til quitting time by reading our blog, we are rewarding you on this Friday afternoon with a huge giveaway.
We have two pairs of tickets and two parking passes to give away for Saturday's Green Day / AFI gig at Comfort Dental Amphitheatre. These are not general admission, groundlings tickets, hell no. This is Backbeat. These are tickets to the Westword VIP box at Comfort Dental.
Want to win them? All you have to do is in five words or less, tell us why you should get the tickets. Five words.
We will pick two winners and arrange for you to get the tickets before the concert tonight or tomorrow. So make sure you leave a valid e-mail address in the e-mail field (we won't share it with anyone), so we can get in touch with you.
(Update: 5:32 p.m.: Contest ends at 11 a.m. Saturday. Keep your five-word reasons coming! I'll contact the two winners via e-mail!)
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
