The Details: Truth be told I never followed Hawkwind during their original heyday based on my overall vintage but as I grew older surely learned to appreciate their offerings and several musicians of note that they helped launched the careers of. I was interested in seeing the current version of Hawkwind that was supposed to visit last year but was cancelled due to artist illness but when I learned about the appearance of their former member Nik Turner who would be delivering a set of their tunes at The Studio, I said to myself “Let’s attend this and even go one better by setting up a contest for tickets for his fans”. Yeah that is right, thanks to the promoters of Excess DB Entertainment, PiercingMetal is going to put a few lucky readers into this show which will be held at The Studio at Webster Hall as opposed to the originally scheduled Marlin Room. Read further down on how to participate.
When and Where: Thursday, September 11th at The Studio at Webster Hall (125 East 11th St. NYC)
To Participate: I’m going to keep this one simple and say “Please tell me three reasons why Hawkwind music is so important to you and why you wish to be there”. You can even talk about Nik’s contributions to the band and since it’s his show that makes the most sense. Kindly denote each reason for clarity and make sure you post three as no edits will be honored. Please be sure to enter your full real name (it’s needed for the list) along with a working email address so we might reach you in case of an issue. Do not enter the email or phone numbers in the comment itself for privacy reasons and enter only once.
Restrictions: This contest has no restrictions to speak of other than Guest or Anonymous entries will not qualify to win even if the submission is honored. We need to know who you are to mark you a winner and list you.
