12 Posts of Christmas: Kim & Seana & More Prizes!

*UPDATED (12/25): More posts to come.

In the meantime, this contest's iTunes winners are....

Sybil (sybilskelton)
Andrea (firepretty)
Bronwyn (pynbahl)
Joslyn (jteubner)
Linda (lburanas).

And the grand prize mp3 player goes to...

Antonia (antoniarose52)

I'll be emailing you five shortly to get your shipping information. Merry Christmas!


For Post #3 of my 12-post Christmas series, I come bearing more gifts.

In promotion of a new web series, Kim and Seana, the PR firm, M80, and Silly Pipe Dreams have teamed up to bring you FIVE $15 iTunes gift cards, and ONE grand prize of a 1GB Thumb Drive MP3 player! Just in time for Christmas! I love exclamation points!!!

What do you have to do?

First, think about how much you love me. That's going to take a while, so you should probably sit down...

Next, head over to Kim and Seana's MySpace page for more info and add them as a friend.

Then, click your way to their YouTube channel, where you can find all their webisodes and videos.

The show follows the two young ladies on the road as they perform and interview different bands. To be frank, the "reality show" aspect of the series is EXTREMELY forced, but hey, it's not as bad as the heinous MTV show, Kaya.

The webisodes do highlight a lot of cool acts, so you should definitely check it out. In their second webisode, Kim and Seana see Dan Deacon and the 1990s perform at CMJ. In other clips, they interview Andrew WK and Matt of Brighton, MA. And there are also videos of Kim performing.

Once you've checked out all of the above, enter the contest below, and I'll pick the winners soon! Good luck!


1. Tell me your favorite concert memory.
2. Post your answer by clicking on the 'COMMENTS' link at the bottom of this post. Those without Blogger accounts can always click 'Other' or 'Anonymous' when leaving a comment.

Not a concert I volunteered for...I swear. N'Sync in Toronto in something like 1999. They zip-lined from one stage in the ACC to another, and one of them got stuck halfway across. He had to pull himself, hand-over-hand to get to the other stage, then run back to his original place as by that time they'd already migrated back. It was awesome.

Heh, I was just talking about this the other day. In 2002 I saw the Arch Allies Tour - Styx and REO Speedwagon at the Six Flags in Jersey. REO Speedwagon rocked so hard that midway through Riddin' The Storm Out, they blew out the power. (Not to the whole park, though that really would have been funny) It was pretty sweet. I still wear the concert shirt frequently.

Is it weird that I actually want the iTunes gift card more than the Grand Prize? Having credits on iTunes just feels like the biggest treat.

Thanks as always!

By FAR, my favourite concert moment is about seven years ago during the original Spice Girls concert tour. Next to me was world's burliest man dressed as Baby Spice - blonde-pigtailed wig, tight metallic pink dress, pink platform shoes and all. The security guards kept having to bring him back to his seat because he would run off and try to jump over the barrier that lead onto the floor and towards the front-row seats. I will never forget this guy.

Ok Go came to my college in 2005, before they were really famous. By the very end, I had somehow ended up in the front row, to watch them do their choreographed dance to "A Million Ways." Pretty much the best 10 minutes ever.

My favorite concert moment? Well, I have 2, one recent, and one from my early youth. In 1985, when I was only 14, my brother camped out for 2 days to get us tickets to see Bruce Springsteen during his Born in the USA Tour. It was amazing. The Boss played for 5 hours with no opening act, and of course, since it was in December, I got to hear "Santa Clause is Coming to Town" live and in person. After thinking about it, this was my favorite -- but I'll still tell about the other one (two) for good measure. :)

My second favorite concert experence was just last year - during Motley Crue's Carnival of Sins Tour. To see the original 4 in all their glory was awesome. A truly rocking good time.

Oh yeah, and one more amazing concert was also this past year - Rooney in the tiny venue at Maxwell's in Hoboken, NJ. A very cozy experience and one quite different from the huge stadium shows of Bruce and the Crue.

My favorite concert moment was being second row to see R.E.M., my favorite band. I even got Mike Mills's bass pick! We sat in front of the father of the lead singer of the opening band, Now It's Overhead, and he managed to get us on the guest list to see the show again in another city a week later. A seriously amazing night.

Without any doubt, I would say seeing The Stooges at this past SXSW. I was right up front smashed against the barricade. I got to see the man up close, got to touch him, saw kids storm the stage and create chaos, and even got to scream into his mic. I'll never forget it.

Lollapalooza 2004. All the bands were great but none were as memorable as the Bravery. The show started off great until they proceeded to drink themselves silly. I've never seen a new band just get smashed; you'd think they'd try to impress the crowd. From then on, the lead singer was slurring his speech, the guitar player kept trying to jump on the amp and falling down (even almost tipping the amp over), and then one of the band members tried to jump into the crowd but couldn't make it over the little security fence in front of the stage (I swear he tried like 3 times and couldn't figure out why he couldn't get over). It was a great scene.

So when I was a freshman in high school, (I'm 22 now so this would've been like 2000?) a couple buddies and I decided to drive almost 3 hours to see N.E.R.D. because I was in love with them back then (still am, just not as much) So we get there and its like 12 acts altogether and we didn't even know this. Of course N.E.R.D. was the LAST act and we had school the next day!? The concert started at 9pm so you can guess how late we were there...During the O.A.R. set (yes the whole line up was hip hop and then...O.A.R.) the annoying college frat boys and the...non college frat...boys? started to fight because they wanted to hear o.a.r and nobody else did. So fists fly and drinks go into faces, and then finally N.E.R.D. come on and Pharrell announces he wouldnt play their set because he didn't like the violence. Meanwhile I had lost my friends and i was being shoved around and was FREAKING OUT. So after watching N.E.R.D. play while I tried to find my friends, we just left because it was like almost 4am and school started at 7:30..! So driving home, we stop to get food...and spend about $40 on food. then realize, theyre was so much marijuana in that little place we had scored the craziest contact buzz and it was my first time being around drugs so it was insane! I was freaking out. We drive home, go back to school as soon as we get home...and never went to see N.E.R.D. again. Wow I never realized how crazy that concert was until typing this out. Sorry it was so long!

I think Live Earth was pretty much unbeatable for me. We were at the far end of the stadium in the upper deck from 11AM to 10:30ishPM. It was suffocating hot and by the time we left, I had the sunburn to prove it (beat red face and legs). The performers were incredible, covering so many genres of music. Everyone was just having such a great time - though I think I came out of there smelling more like smoke than anything else! Bon Jovi absolutely rocked the place and Roger Waters was beyond incredible. What a show!

As far as small venues go, we were basically leaning on the stage at Gramercy Theatre to see Josh Rouse & Maria Taylor last month. Such a cozy venue and you could really feel the connection between Josh and his audience...unlike any other small venue show I'd been to.

That was longer than intended. =/ lol

My favorite concert memory was from this past October. The Killers played a show in Athen, GA at a 500 person club. I lined up really early so I got front row and there was no barrier, so I could actually touch them (but I didn't). For the encore, they played the complete murder trilogy, which was the first time they had played the first part (Leave the Bourbon on the Shelf) live. I snagged a pick from the guitarist as well as Brandon Flowers's set list, which I had all the guys sign when I met them after the show. Pretty fuckin' amazing.

I saw Ok Go perform too, but in the summer of '06, when they were an opening act. That dance was weird because no one part of it was impressive, but as a whole it was so entertaining. I dislike the band though because the lead singer told the crowd we were too well-behaved, which lead to a massive crush of people, which lead to me being smashed against the barrier. I also passed out right after that concert, so that's probably my least favorite memory...and this comment is way too long so The End.

My most treasured memory - it's 1964, I'm 11 years old, and my sainted mother took me and 2 other little girls to see....THE BEATLES! Oh, the screaming, the hysterics, it was great. Who knew then what they would turn out to be, or that the window of time to see them perform live would be so small. Yes, I am old.

Favorite most recent memory was this past weekend. I attended the Polyphonic Spree's Holiday Extravaganza. Those shows are always great fun, and this year they did "Happy Xmas (War is Over)" fulfilling my longtime dream of standing in a euphoric crowd of people singing WAR IS OVER IF YOU WANT IT at the top of our lungs. Quite cathartic.

Matt Good, Red Deer, this past September. It was my first night in Alberta for a week vacation. Some idiot kept yelling crap at the opening band Dala. The whole audiance basically told him to get lost, and then cheered when security kicked him out. =)

My favourite concert memory is ... watching the Spice Girls concert on tv like ten years ago and dancing/singing along. Sad, I know, but true.

my favorite concert memory is probably the first time i saw nickel creek. it was at a small venue in houston, and they were singing sweet afton. and i looked around, and realized that i was surrounded by people from every walk of life.

i was especially awed by the fact that i saw 12 year old girls there and 80 year old men. it was just cool that everyone found some common ground in the music. ::shrug::

either that or the time i saw counting crows play holiday in spain. it was great.

I have only been to one concert in my whole life and that was U2's Elevation tour. They played in Anaheim and it was awesome. My favorite concert memory is when U2 finished their set and left the stage, then the whole arena started screaming and clapping for an encore. Just being there among thousands of screaming fans was a rush.

My favorite concert experience has to be from high school when I went to Hershey to see The Dave Matthews Band. My friend and I didn't have any tickets so we were watching from the outside. About half way through the show we moved up front to this gate that was separating us from the concert. At the same time a bunch of people were climbing on to this dumpster and the cops went over to stop them. At this point I leaned on the gate and to my surprise it was open. The 100 or so people who were behind me saw this and all rushed in. My friend and I looked at each other and did the same. If anyone from Hershey is reading this please don't arrest me. Josh 1 Hershey 0. Good day.

Favorite concert memory would be Incubus '03. There are very few bands/singers who can sound so genuinely perfect live, but Brandon Boyd is one of them. "Aqueous Transmissions" as the last song performed? Gave me chills.

One of the best concert moments was this past October when I saw Lifehouse in Grand Rapids. The whole band was great and to see the emotion that poured out of Jason Wade was amazing but the best was when Jason let Bryce Soderberg do lead vocals for a few songs. He had a better voice than Jason!! I think it is great to see bands that are still best friends after so many years and can share the spotlight especially since a lot of the music scene these days is all about the divas. I would recommend their concerts to anyone :)

The best concert ever was when I saw Jason Mraz, Raul Midon, and Makana back in 04. It was an acoustic tour and Jason's choice of guests was phenominal. Raul Midon is a blind blues artist who is like a modern day one man band (download the song State of Mind for a sample) and Makana is an incredibly talented slack key guitarist from Hawaii who can play the guitar with pretty much any part of his body. (Since you love covers I recommend his cover of "Only You" but he also has a song called "Song For Sonny"...fate.) There was a point about midway through Jason's set where he brought them back out and they played covers and one original song that they had written together on the road. "Keep on Hoping" was the song they wrote together and to see their three styles blend into one was just pure brilliance. I would go back in time to that night if I got the chance.

Blogger Caroline said... favorite is lifehouse (i see that someone else named them) this past october in san diego!. first of all, i was able to snag a front row spot - that was the first time i was front row for ANYTHING (although i had a chance to see the shins front row in april, but i decided to stand at a more comfortable spot. i regret that decision. lol). jason wade&co are pretty damn awesome live, and the emotion that comes pouring out of jason is pretty amazing. but the best part? i met the band before the show. i'd actually met them very briefly before, but i didn't get a picture with them or anything...this time, i got a pic and got stuff signed. they're cool peeps. fun times.

runner up: the second time i saw the shins...also this past october. during the encore, james decided to change the lyrics to "so says i" to something like "i don't wipe my butt with toilet paper, it's a waste of trees." i was dying. so hilarious. i <3 the freaking shins. they not only sound AMAZING live, but they're freaking hilarious.

Don't worry Sonny, I know that the 12 Days of Christmas are the days from Christmas to Epiphany, and if the 12 posts of Christmas go along with those, I'd figure you've got till Jan. 6 before you break your promises. Plenty of time! In fact, you were early on the first three!
