Reader Rewards: Win A Live Annuals Video From BaebleMusic

Hey, remember a couple weeks ago when we talked about BaebleMusic here and posted links to some of their video clips for awesome bands including Asobi Seksu, Maritime and Daylight's For The Birds? Well, the folks over at BaebleMusic got in touch to say "how do." We got to chatting and the upshot is we're running a contest together. So, you like that band Annuals? The popular Raleigh, N.C.-based indie sextet has deservedly gotten a lot of love online. Recently the band posted a new video for their tune "Brother," which we've posted above this item. The video melds a performance clip with some odd Southern gothic imagery -- it's cool. The band also recently performed on Conan O'Brien's show, which you can read more about here at I Guess I'm Floating. Anyway, how would you like to win a high-quality video of the band's Friday performance at Webster Hall in New York City? Well, all you have to do is click on the graphic below, and it will take you to a form where you can enter to win a free download of the entire Annuals set from Friday night. BaebleMusic, which usually sells these for nine bucks, will choose one winner on Friday the 26th, when the video will be all edited and pretty and ready to go.

A note on the entry form: BaebleMusic asks for a bunch of information. That sort of spooked us, so we got assurances from Baeble that your info will not be bought, sold, rented, or printed out and distributed with the Boston Globe like our credit card number was about a year ago (thanks again, Globe!). And the reason they ask for your phone number is because Baeble says a lot of times when they send an email to someone about winning a contest it gets caught in the winner's spam filter. So don't be fearful. Just think about the awesome video. Baeble is going to give us the name of the winner, which we'll announce here on the 26th or the 27th. Good luck everybody. Finally, we've posted the remaining Annuals tour dates at the bottom of this item in case you want to get out and see the band do their thing live.
