    It would be great, except I'm all the way across the country. This contest is pretty much limited to those in the LA area, especially since it has just been announced on jambase. Oh well, Asheville, NC representin' for the new year.

    I'm w/ you deffmidget! I love the Lips too, but they are among those bands who don't seem to realize that the southeast exists!
