This is another one of those gigs where I pinch myself – getting to work alongside some of the best indie bands in the world – AND… Here’s a kicker: I want you and a friend to join me for FREE.

I’ll pick up airfare, lodging and VIP tickets for you and one friend (or just you) for the entire 3 day event below…plus time for us to hang out and drink beer together. And it?s NEXT week – PLUS WE’RE LIVE STREAMING THE ENTIRE EVENT. Read on…

The Capitol Hill Block Party is Seattle?s premier mid-summer music festival where more than 100 bands take over Seattle?s hippest neighborhood on 6 stages over three days. (Check out the insane lineup here.) And right now I?m freaking STOKED to announce that we?ll be #cjLIVE streaming the festivities — private performances, artist interviews, and main stage shows — for the entire 3 day event.

Here?s how you can enter to win tickets — airfare, hotel, and VIP tix to the festival — to join us in Seattle. It?s easy.

First, this giveaway couldn?t be possible without the support of my friends at the Block Party (love you guys) and TargetSEA (congrats on new SEA store) who are graciously supporting my ability to share this #cjLIVE internet feed with the world, so you MUST be following BOTH of them–and yours truly–on Twitter here:




Second, tweet this exact tweet below, only be sure to personalize it by inserting a cool word or phrase about music… (ie Music is LIFE, Music is ALL I NEED, etc)

But we’ll also be partying and having the time of our lives. Whether you win the trip to hang with us in Seattle or you are able to tune in live at during the event to watch, interact online and get good music piped right into your home, my hope is that you love what you see and join me in doing what we can, spreading the message and democratizing access to this stuff as best we can with our guts, our will, and technology.
