CONTEST: Win Tix To See Fountains Of Wayne @ UT

Let’s not mince words: Fountains Of Wayne are hands down, the greatest power pop band of all time. Greater than The Knack, greater than the Cars, greater even than Cheap Trick (yeah, we just went there). Sadly, in the grotesquely warped reality of the here and now — where the shittiest people (think Mitch McConnell) and the shittiest music (think Ke$sha) get all the glory and the complimentary gift bags that come with it — being the greatest power pop band of all time plus four bucks gets you a cup of coffee at Starbucks and, well, that’s about it. The fact that there is nothing to be gained from being Fountains of Wayne and yet they’ve carried on for 16 years with little more than the drooling palaver of rock critics and a small but devout cult of acolytes to show for it only confirms their sheer awesomeness. One day we want to grow up to be them. And you can, too! Anyway, they are coming to Union Transfer on Friday in support of their latest platter of witty infectiousness, Sky Full Of Holes, and we have a pair of tickets to give away to you, dear reader. Why? Because we love you, that’s why. Third person to email us at FEED@PHAWKER.COM with the correct answer to the following question wins: What is the name of Chris Collingswood’s country side band? Put the words WAYNE’S WORLD in the subject line and include a mobile number for confirmation. Good luck and godspeed!
