** SPECIAL NOTE** To honor the fans who make OurStage great, we decided to give away three pairs of tickets to this year’s ROTHBURY music festival. We asked members of the three OurStage bands playing here to choose their biggest fans and give them the tickets.
Meet Liz Tejchma:
The guys from Sweet Japonic identified her as their biggest fan and chose her to receive a free ticket to ROTHBURY courtesy of OurStage. Here’s a pic with her and the band after their show:
…and here’s Liz’s ROTHBURY diary:
“Going to the ROTHBURY Festival wasn’t really an option. The ticket price was more than my grad student bank account could afford. Then, at the beginning of this week, I received an email from Sweet Japonic promising free tickets to their biggest fans. Since I have supported them for seven years and attended more than 50 of their shows, I felt fully qualified to enter the contest.
Twelve hours later, I found out I won! I am still in shock that I’m sitting here watching so many amazing bands perform. ROTHBURY has exceeded my expectations! So far, my favorite show has been Widespread Panic. The energy shared between the band and the audience was phenomenal. Everyone was dancing and having a great time!
Many thanks to OurStage.com for providing the tickets. Without you guys, I would have missed out on this unbelievable experience.
**Update: Liz provided a Canon USB cord that proved to be invaluable (I left mine at my parents house). To thank her, I got her into the press row to take pictures of John Mayer, one of her favorites. Click here to see pics of that experience.
