LAST DAY TO ENTER CONTEST TO WIN WHITE STRIPES ITEMS
Last month on February 21st WhiteStripes.net and the Little Room turned 10! During these past ten years we watched the White Stripes evolve into one of the best rock 'n roll bands of all time and go out on top! So, with that said, I have decided to run a contest/donation drive. The contest contains some rare items and your donation will help out with regards to the hosting costs for the website as well as the Little Room messageboard. Here's the skinny. For just a $10 donation to WhiteStripes.net you will be entered in the running for not one, but TWO Rob Jones White Stripes concert posters. I have collected these over the years and have obtained duplicates from time to time. The first poster is from a show I attended (and was lucky enough to meet Jack and Meg!). June 23rd, 2003 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The second poster is from the November 24, 2003 show in Camden, NJ. Also included will be the Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground 7" single, released back in 2002. To make things more interesting for every $5 donated after the initial $10 you will receive another entry. So, for example, a $15 donation throws your name in the hat twice. Along with the posters and 7" vinyl single, the winner will receive some various items (stickers, pins, etc) from the load of Icky Thump promotional material I still have. The winner will be drawn random style and will receive an email from me shortly after the contest ends AT MIDNIGHT EST Friday, March 16th. The winner will also be announced in the news feed on WhiteStripes.net
WhiteStripes.net and the Little Room survives on YOUR help! Thank you very much to those who contribute!
