UPDATE: Congratulations to the contest winner, Mary Ross.

Now that the poster /12” contest is out of the way, we’ll do one last contest for the LCD Soundsystem / Sleigh Bells show hitting the Pavilion on Saturday.

Write exactly 100 words to telling us how bad(ly) you want to go to this show. The best “essay” (c’mon, 100 words is nothing, this post is probably going to be 100 words by the end) will win, and we’ll post it on here.

You have until 10:02 PM to write in and tell us why, because that’s when the show is (Saturday 10/2).

    just saying, you’re asking people to send in an essay explain how bad they are at wanting to go to the show (how bad vs. how badly they want to go to the show). so the winner should be someone who doesn’t really want to go to the show that bad.

    This is LCD’s final tour, and having seen them blow away the crowd at their Bonnaroo show, I want their rhythms to overtake me again one last time. They are amazing live. James Murphy’s music and lyrics are genius. Before they dissolve, I want to sing and dance to their first single “Losing my Edge” now that I actually understand (most of) its allusions. Need more? “I’m so glad this is happening. All My Friends are looking forward to getting innocuous to the group’s unique sound of silver. This is happening! LCD Soundsystem is playing at my house, my house!”

    I’ve never seen LCD Soundsystem. Although I tried desperately, I didn’t win tickets to Virgin Mobile FreeFest 2010 before they ran out. Now, all I do is sit in my room and creep on facebook pictures of the show from friends who were lucky enough to see LCD at FreeFest. I listen to “Someone Great” on repeat and weep into my pillow, thinking inappropriate thoughts involving James Murphy. My diet: lots of twinkies and even more Jack Daniels.
    Basically, if I win these tickets, I can return to showering regularly, leaving my room, and being a productive member of society.

    Who won? I’ve been puking my pants (nervously) all day.
