Nobody does them


There was a while about 10 years ago where it was real easy to win.

late 00's/early 10's I used to crush the GW radio station giveaways via FB.

I feel like this should be a runaway win for one of us. What's your best bad idea?

*at The Howard Theatre, Union Stage, Jammin Java, The Theatre at Capital Turnaround, and Miracle Theatre
The future of the DC music scene is possible because of fans like you!

You're the expert on the scene and I wanna hear your thoughts on what we're doing well, what we could improve, you get it!

Best part? For just five minutes of your time (or less tbh!), you will be entered to win The Pass, aka A PAIR OF TICKETS TO EVERY SHOW AT OUR VENUES FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR!

All you have to do is take a short survey!
Not feeling a few questions? it's okay to skip around! live your truth, king.

I was tempted not to post for that reason as well
but I think only 5 more entries won't kill my odds that much

Luckily, sideLink posted a broken link, so no one will fill it out!

I entered last year and lost.

The link problem may be Union Stage's problem, not Sidehatch's. The link in the email I got this year doesn't work.

I wish Sweetcell would send some of his social media karma...I remember he won a free trip to Brussels through a Facebook contest.

Damn the form is closed.
I too remember winning tix on a semi-regular basis. I used to be a regular City Paper reader and noticed when the revamped their website at some point that they got rid of the page for entries. I feel like the lack of such giveaways also plays into other recent convos on here re: local music and music scenes more broadly. There's a lack of systemic infrastructure, which was eventually boiled down to putting the onus entirely on "the people" and social media.
     
WHAT?

what is odd is it worked for me, but shortly after they posted another link via email?

I definitely used to win through City Paper... A big one was the GW radio station in the late 2000's. They had a facebook page that had probably 50 followers and was always giving tickets away on there.

College radio really served many great purposes when I was a young one. I won *so* many great concert tickets.
