The Details: The third annual Anime NYC convention is rapidly approaching and this event seems to get bigger and bigger with each passing year. For those still in the unaware, this is a convention that is 100% dedicated to the Pop Culture phenomenon of Anime, Manga and other related Japanese entertainment. It’s a three-day event that will overwhelm the senses and delight each and every attendee based on the special events, special guests and screenings, available products and scores of incredible cosplay of some of the most popular Anime in existence. If you’ve followed the Official PiercingMetal Instagram at all, you know full well that we just love the convention circuit and do our best to support amazing events such as this one. Now, thanks to the fine folks at Leftfield Media, my convention minded Anime friends will have the chance to win a Weekend Pass to the convention and this means ALL THREE DAYS of it. This is our second time doing a contest for this convention and we thank the fine folks at Leftfield Media for offering us this awesome giveaway. Historically speaking, this marks our 260th contest and finds this outlet passing 1700 tickets given away. Onward and upward I always say so get ready and get set because the details on how to participate in this one are coming up next along with some important guidelines. Let’s go.
When and Where: November 15th – 17th at Jacob Javits Center, 34th Street and 11th Avenue NYC
To Participate: When I did the contest for the 2018 Anime NYC, I really put the interested people to work. It was my very first Pop Culture event contest and we were dealing with a full 3-Day pass for said affair and that was my rationale. Since we are again dealing with full weekend passes I am putting you to work once more and this premise will be a fun one for sure. Considering how many awesome live action superhero movies have been coming out over the last few years for this contest YOU are the producer of an upcoming Anime live motion picture. Most of my contest questions will need your answers based on this premise. There are no wrong answers so let’s have some fun. Continue reading Win A Weekend Pass To Anime NYC 2019→
The Details: According to my records, it’s been five years since the last time that I held a contest for a Nile show and when you consider how often they come around that is far too long for my liking. I once noted that the band Nile had been on a destructive Metal path since their inception in 1993 and over the last few years their impact and influence has visibly grown more than tenfold. The bands own Metal maturity continues to broaden with each consecutive release and they will be delivering plenty of classics along with their newest material from the “Vile Nilotic Rites” album which comes out only days before the gig. The tour is “A Vile Caustic Attack” and brings along the band Terrorizer and more and thanks to the fine folks at Live Nation, some of the PiercingMetal readership will be attending this concert for free at the Gramercy Theatre.
It wasn’t too long ago that we discussed William DuVall here on the website with the first single from his now released album (seen HERE) and the announcement about a short tour (discussed HERE). Now its time to add this talented musician to our run of awesome contests. Read on down below.
The Details: William DuVall is the voice behind the mighty Alice In Chains and now that they have completed a massive tour, it’s time to deliver something much different to his world of fans. As noted just above, he’s recently released a solo acoustic album and has embarked on a brief tour at a number of the City Winery locations. With the NYC space being worked on at the moment, this show will be held at the awesome Cutting Room. This will be a special night of music and perhaps even some stories behind the new music he has released. It’s going to be a great time for sure and thanks to the marketing powers that be at The City Winery, some of the PiercingMetal readership will be attending this event at The Cutting Room for absolutely free. Let’s go over some of the details on how you participate in this giveaway.
As it’s been awhile since we’ve done a proper ticket giveaway contest I figured there was no better show to get back into practice with than the return of Kamelot to NYC and their wonderful Finnish supporting acts of Sonata Arctica and Battle Beast. We’re well past our 250th overall contest and are closing in on a milestone number of tickets being dished out. Let’s get down to business.
The Details: When I launched PiercingMetal back in 2005, one of the greatest things about doing this kind of thing was getting to learn more about new and exciting bands. Back in our early days we did just that and not only was I witnessing the awesome from bands like Kamelot and Sonata Arctica, I have had numerous chats with them over the years and consider them vital parts of this outlets growth and positive support of Metal. I am fortunate for our positive exchanges and absolutely honored by the chance to offer our lucky diehards a ticket to this sure to be extraordinary show. When you add the might of Battle Beast as well, this is just a win, win, win sort of night. Now onto the finer points and how to participate.
