Invent A Band Name, Win a Radass Pair Of Converse HighTops

converse-logoIt’s Friday thank Jeebers and to celebrate that fact and spread the word about the Converse Get Out Of The Garage campaign, I’m giving away a sick pair of hightops that I think you guys will dig.

Well, provided you are a man that has size 10 feet and lives in Cape Town. If you are a man who has size 10 feet and lives in Cape Town, give yourself a pat on the back and read on!

If you aren’t, you are still more than welcome to enter the competition, but just know that we’re playing for a brand new pair of Converse size 10 hightops for men okay? Okay. Let’s get started.

First off, here’s a pic of the grand prize:



Secondly, this giveaway is part of the Converse Get Out Of The Garage competition which launched recently for the second year running.

The competition is strictly for unsigned SA bands. If you are one, all you have to do to enter is upload your best track to Soundcloud, post it on Converse’s Facebook page before the 15th of August and cross your fingers and toes.

If your track gets chosen by judges Catherine Grenfell, Jon Savage and Reason for the final ten, your band will get a profile page with your band’s info and a “Vote” button on Converse’s FB page.

The band with the most votes from members of the public wins the grand prize (a slot at this year’s Rocking The Daisies music festival, a trip to perform at the iconic 100 Club in London and a chance to record at the Rubber Tracks studio in Brooklyn, New York).



So if you’re in an unsigned band, hit the Converse FB page and try your luck, what have you got to lose?

HOWEVER, if you’re just here for the free shoes, then here’s how to get them.

Write your ultimate band name in the comments section below and the one that either makes me chuckle or is undeniably cool / badass wins, easy as that.

I’ll announce the big winner on Monday, so you’ve got all weekend to enter. I’ll accept up to 3 different entries per person but no more so go and down an espresso or two, get the creative juices flowing and may the best make-believe band win!

Have a killer weekend Party People, see ya’ll same time same place next week Winking smile
