Ah, the first weekend of the school year: classes haven’t quite started up, freshman haven’t yet learned their limits, but Ithaca’s Positive Jam festival is already bringing the Hold Steady, the Felice Brothers, Deer Tick and the Rural Alberta Advantage to the shores of Cayuga Lake for a phenomenal all-day event.
Sure, the $25 tickets might strain some back-to-school budgets. But THREE lucky 20 Watts readers will win a pair of tickets to Positive Jam — so you and a friend can see the festival for free!
Its easy to enter the drawing: just comment on any blog post between now at September 2 and write “POSITIVE JAM” at the end of your comment. Make sure to leave a current e-mail address in the e-mail box, too! We’ll draw the winners on September 2nd at 8:00 p.m. and post the winners’ names on the 20 Watts blog, as well as e-mail them with details on claiming their prizes. Positive Jam is on Sunday, September 5, in Ithaca’s Stewart Park — about an hour from SU’s campus. Doors open at noon. You don’t have to be an SU student to win.
Even if you can’t make it, keep your eye on 20watts.wordpress.com: this Wednesday, we’re dropping a package of Positive Jam content, complete with interviews, editor playlists, and reviews of all the bands’ latest albums. Plus, we’ll have full coverage of the festival as it happens!
Get commenting, y’all — we doubt Juice Jam will be this sweet.
