Relay For Life – April 22nd

Each year, we make a point to plan at least one home town event specifically benefiting a local charity we believe in. This year, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that we are working with the East Jefferson chapter of the American Cancer Society on their Relay For Life event. If you’ve never been to one of these events you’re in for a treat! These events are family friendly (in fact, family recommended) and are a lot of fun, so plan to come out and rock with us to help put cancer in its place!

The great CukoRakko Prize Pack Giveaway!

Who wants to go to CukoRakko for free!? EVERYONE!

We’re very excited to announce that we have worked out a deal with the festival promoters that allows us to host a contest exclusively for our fans. Many Bothans died to bring us this information, and we’re not even going to tell you what Scott had to do to get the festival to agree to this. Anyway, This contest will give two lucky fans a swag pack and weekend passes to CukoRakko at Horse Pens 40 on October 2-4. 2015!

What’s in the pack?

Glad you asked! The lucky winner will receive the following prize pack (valued at $200):

  • Two weekend passes to CukoRakko
  • Two autographed “One Week” EP’s
  • Two official Pyrite Parachute “One Week” show posters
  • Two large vinyl Pyrite Parachute stickers

ERMAHGAWD how do I enter?

Entering is simple and individuals can enter twice (once on Facebook and once on Twitter), by doing the following:



That’s it! Once you’ve done those things you’ve done all you can do. The rest is up to karma… and whatever remaining Bothans we have who will randomly choose the winner.

What if I didn’t win?

Much unhappy, so lose. It’s ok, though, because even though we can only give away two passes Chip was able to steal a few more passes that we’ve gotten permission to sell at a sick discount. If you want these very limited in quantity passes, email us right away.

You’re out of special passes, jerk. What do I do now?

Well shame on you for not winning and not being quick on the draw for the few passes Chip was able to swipe. Don’t you know how anti-swiping stuff Chip is? Fine, we have one last line of defense against paying full-price for you guys. While Chip was swiping passes and Joey was distracting the promoters Keith was able to hack the festival site to set up a special discount code just for our truest of true fans. Enter “werdances” during the checkout process and you’ll get a discount there. Shh… don’t tell anyone. Or tell everyone, that’s probably even better.

Other boring details

The contest will run for one week, beginning at 10:00 AM Tuesday, September 1st, 2015 and ending at 11:59 PM on Tuesday, September 8th, 2015. The winning entry will be randomly selected from shares and retweets posted between those dates. The winner will be contacted individually once the contest has ended to arrange shipping, once arrangements are made the winner will be announced. No purchase necessary to win.
