This just in:
Texas born and bred, the guys of Midlake hold the Lone Star state near and dear to their heart. So much, in fact, that they want to treat their Austin fans to a unique scavenger hunt opportunity to win SXSW badges to catch the band at their showcase at the 2010 SXSW Music, Interactive, and Film Conference. The guys will perform songs from The Courage of Others, out now via Bella Union. For more info, check back with Filter.
The details are simple, Austinites. Follow Filter on Twitter. Throughout the next few days, promotion details will come rolling through. Each day, a new landmark will be revealed. Get yourself to it, @reply to FILTER with a photo of you at the locale with #midlakesxsw, and that’s it! The first person or team with all 10 landmarks correctly identified will win an awesome local prize pack containing a year’s worth of free haircuts from Bird’s Barbershop, $25 in gift certificates from P. Terrys Burger Stand, free movies from Alamo Drafthouse, a prize pack from Sweet Leaf Tea, a Midlake prize pack, AND two ever-so-coveted SXSW music badges.
