Three Now Playing London

COMPETITION NOW CLOSED, MOVE ON PLEASE, NOTHING TO SEE HERE, DO YOUR TALKING WHILE YOU’RE WALKING, YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO HOME BUT YOU CAN’T STAY HERE

Have you heard about Three’s Now Playing gigs? Don’t answer just yet. Wait until you have read this post, and then answer “yes I have, and I wish to enter your competition to win tickets to one of them, if you don’t mind too much.”

Three are hosting their Now Playing shows to celebremate their partnership with Spotify, the result of which is that you can now stream Spotify on Three mobile phones. Heck, they’re even giving some phones away for free.

The first Now Playing London (#threenowplaying) gig is this very Thursday, the 28th October, at Shoreditch Town Hall, and My Chemical Toilet has one pair to give away.

The winner will get to see popular doomsters White Lies, jerky falsetto glitchpoppers Everything Everything and lovelorn nouveau soft-rockers, I Am Arrows. The DJ for the evening will be remix maniac Eddy Temple Morris.

Not a bad line-up for a freeb, huh?

To enter, email stuart (at) mychemicaltoilet.com with the name of one band Andy Burrows of I Am Arrows used to be in. Use the subject line RAZORLIGHT. Please include a phone number “just in case”.

I’ll pick a winner at random at 5pm on Wednesday 27th October, so you’ll get 24 hours’ notice if you’re the lucky swine. Please see after the jump for terms and conditions.

For more information on Now Playing and to find out more about Three’s exclusive Spotify Premium bundle, visit nowplayinguk.com. You’ll also be able to listen to playlists compiled speshly by the Now Listening artists.

Win a trip to Lovebox Weekender by sharing your festival photos with Kickers UK

Competitions, Festival News

No Comments

kickers_lovebox_facebookIf you’ve ever been to a festival, chances are you’ve come back with some pretty “interesting” photos. Which you have then “shared” on Facebook and “tagged” with the names of your pals.

(I’m using quotation marks here because we all know, deep inside, that photographing your friend tripping his nuts off up a tree, and then publicising the incident on a huge online social network, is essentially a very, very wrong thing to do.)

Well this summer Kickers are giving you the chance to use your embarrassing photos for good, kind of – they’re asking you to upload your best festival photos to their Facebook page, with the winner receiving a free trip to Lovebox Weekender, which takes place on 18th & 19th July, for them and five friends. Five runners up will win a pair of Kickers footwear.

So logic would suggest that if you went to a festival and took some great group shots, ask your buddies to submit snaps as well and you immediately boost your chances of winning by ICan’tWorkOutHowMuch percent. Be quick, mind you – the contest ends on July 12th.

Honestly though, the chances of you beating that shot of my friend hallucinating on a branch are pretty slim.

Win tickets to see Kelly Rowland, David Guetta & Cicada at the iTunes Festival

Competitions

kelly_rowlandWhat it says up there, really. Cicada are having a rather good 2009, and David Guetta can be relied upon to bring the bang – as well as Kelly Rowland for their big old smasheroonie collabo “When Love Takes Over”. Mark Knight will be there as well, but I don’t know who that is.

I’ve got a pair of tickets to give away to the gig, takes place on Wednesday 8th July at the Roundhouse in Camden, London.

For a chance to win, you’ll need to know the answer to this insultingly easy question:

What group was Kelly Rowland in before she went solo?

Sent your answer with your full name, phone number and the subject line Row Row Row Your Land to stuart@mychemicaltoilet.com by 5.30pm on Tuesday 7th July.

One entry per person. UK entrants only, sozzyplops.

Win tickets to see Wave Machines at O2 Islington Academy

If you know what’s good for you, you’ll watch this bladdy video by Wave Machines. The song it accompanies, “I Go I Go I Go”, is quite the finest thing you will hear today unless you encounter, I dunno, a puppy who can whistle:

Wave Machines – I Go I Go I Go

I’m right, amn’t I? If that hasn’t made your day slightly better I think you are legitimitely allowed to go back to bed, because you’re beyond help.

“I Go I Go I Go” was first released last year, but now it’s been all polished up ready for a release people might actually hear about. It will be available from 1st June, with their debut album Wave If You’re Really There out a couple of weeks later on 15th June.

My Chemical Toilet has a pair of tickets to Wave Machines’ London show on Monday 18th May up for grabs, you know. Check out how to snag ‘em after the jump.

Win tickets to see Pete"r" Doherty at The Rhythm Factory

pete_doherty_black__white ***COMPETITION CLOSED***

Pete – sorry, Peter - Doherty is playing a couple of gigs at east London’s Rhythm Factory this weekend.

Friday’s show is a charity bash to commemorate London promoter Johnny ‘Rhythm’ Sedassi, who died earlier this year. That one sold out quick smart, but Doherty is playing another show the following night, known in the biz as “Saturday 16th May”. Tickets are available from Ticketweb, but My Chemical Toilet has a pair to give away to one lucky blighter.

Pete”r” Doherty shows tend to be unpredictable, guest-festooned affairs, so who knows who may end up joining the larrikin onstage. Graham Coxon, who played on his recent well-received album Grace/Wastelands? Carl Barat? The Gin Blossoms? It is just impossible to tell with Pete”r”.

It is also impossible to tell what time he will show up, and at this point I should probably point out that My Chemical Toilet PROVIDES NO GUARANTEE AS TO THE QUALITY OF PETE”R”‘S PERFORMANCE.

With that proviso taken care of, on with the comp.

If you’re anything like me – or, in fact, any of the new media nerdoratti that makes up Shiny Media – you’ll be pretty into your online video. Whether it’s shooting drunken escapades and flinging them onto Facebook to embarrass your (ex-)friends, or entering some of the many contests you can find on YouTube, these days the shooting, editing and watching of video online plays an increasing part in people’s leisure time.
Why, even bona fide internet superstars are a bit obsessed with it. Take Gary Cutlack, the special boy behind Idiot Toys and UK Resistance, and writer for Tech Digest. Below is Gary’s portrait of his video life.
Why not tell us what your video life entails? Just shoot a video and send it in, basically, and you’re in with a pretty decent shot at winning either some Dabs.com, TopShop or Nike vouchers to the tune of
