The Details: Pentagram are bona fide legends of the Doom Metal genre and were underground before such a label was even a thing. Their crushing sound is something that fans need to hear up close and personal to better absorb it and that makes offering up this new contest for their appearance at LPR an absolutely awesome opportunity. The band will be joined by Brant Bjork, Royal Thunder and Black Wizard and thanks to the marketing powers that be at the venue, some PiercingMetal readers are going to see this show for free. Read on below on how to participate.
When and Where: Saturday, April 21st at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker Street)
To Participate: Since I generally ask for three things about a particular band that you like the most and compel you to enter the competition let’s stick with that premise as it pertains to the legendary Pentagram. You can speak about an album, a live concert experience or perhaps how they changed your own Metal music perception. Just give me three good reasons and more than just “because they rock dude” since I laugh at those entries at this point. If you have deep appreciation for any of the opening acts you can surely show them some love after you compile your necessary three Pentagram points. A little brown nosing so to speak ? Before you begin please peruse some important guidelines.
– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission and must be approved by an administrator. Once approved it shows online.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not if I’ve asked for a list of any kind.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes as you need to show ID at the venue. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you CAN and WILL attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible for you to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see the responses so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult should you be marked as a winner.
– I suggest you typing your submission on a PC or in an email note first if you are using a mobile device since sometimes a lost connection will cause you to lose your work. Once your entry is completed just copy and paste it in and edit from there.
Bring it on as this one will close by noon on the day before the show or when allotment has been depleted.
Restrictions: PiercingMetal contests are open to our Loyal Readers, Official Facebook Page and Twitter Followers living in the Tri-state area. That said we are always looking for the new names first to the giveaways. We want EVERYONE to have a chance to enjoy a show on the provider and PiercingMetal, but if you just won a contest recently you will likely not have a chance for this one. Don’t let that stop you from entering of course but we do keep track based on the overall demand for this stuff at this point. Please note that Anonymous or Guest comments will not be approved. This is for a single ticket only and no plus ones can or will be honored so don’t ask for one. If you have recently won a contest on the site (within a month) you will not qualify for this event. Bring it on.
If You Win This Contest: If you are marked as one of the winners for this contest, here is how to claim the ticket. On the night of the show go to the box office and ask for the House Guest List. Please bring proper identification (driver’s license, passport, NYC ID card) and your name will be checked off that list for you to enter. If you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for an onsite manager and cite how this contest was done in coordination with venue Marketing and PiercingMetal.com. You can also expect an email to the provided address reminding you of the win so make sure that @piercingmetal.com is listed as a safe domain to receive notes from.
