Hope everyone got their tickets last week for Wilco’s upcoming fall tour. If you haven’t already purchased said tickets, chances are you’re S.O.L… or areyou?
Wilco has partnered up with Record Store Day to bring us the “I Love My Record Store” contest. Before everybody gets all up in arms trying to decode this mysterious title for a contest, let me explain:
Wilco’s latest single from their forthcoming album The Whole Love is entitled “I Might.” The B-side to that single is a cover of Nick Lowe’s “I Love My Label,” a wink to the fact that Wilco recently dropped Nonesuch, their previous label, and created their own: dBpm. Henceforth, the Record Store Day contest is called “I Love My Record Store,” which is in and of itself a wink to the Wilco cover of “I Love My Label.” Everybody on board? Good. I’m not explaining that again.
Anyway, here’s how to enter:
- Go to the Record Store Day site here
- Enter your information on the form
- Write down the name of your favorite record store and why it’s your favorite
- Pray to Uncle Tupelo, The Wilco (and Son Volt) God of tunes, that your name is selected to go see Wilco Live At Central Park on September 22! (Contest ends 7/31, so hurry up! And don’t forget to include the name of the store, as well as the city and state so we can share the love!).
The contest ends 7/31, so mosey on over!
