Contest: Steel Train Ticket Giveaway #6

Posted by - 12:27 AM on 10/18/08
Here is your last chance to win tickets to see Steel Train on their headlining tour with Dear and the Headlights and Forgive Durden.
Message from the BandSince this is the last contest, we've decided to help you guys out-instead of giving away one pair of tix to the tour, today we'll be giving away two pairs! However, we have made the contest tougher, there are two questions! The first two people to answer the questions will receive tix.

Question #1: In 2006, Steel Train had an off day on tour and went to the beach with this band while their Steel Train van sunk into the sand and was almost swept into the ocean (for real). What band were they with?

Question #2: Earlier that year they were on tour with a band and decided to pull the ultimate prank while this band was onstage, Steel Train got their van keys, moved their van, and had the promoter stop the show to tell them their van was stolen. What band did they prank? (bonus question: what prank did this band pull on Steel Train?) If you can answer the bonus question, you get a free sticker pack!

Once again, thank you for making these contests awesome, and if you didn't win tickets, come to the shows and say hi!

The first show is already sold out, so if you don't have tix for the tour yet, get them before its too late http://steeltrain.frontgatetickets.com/
