Contest: Win a Bunch of Derby-Related (and not-so-Derby-Related) Stuff!

derbySo, local indie pop outfit Derby has a very special 7-inch release party show on Jan. 28 (even though the wax and accompanying digital download EP is technically out in Febuary, we're guessing you'll be able to pick it up at this show), and we want to send you there. We also want to give you a Derby 7-inch. And damnit, while we're at it, we'd like to get rid of this Death Cab For Cutie book (no offense to excellent band photographer Autumn de Wilde, but we're just not big enough superfans to geek out on DCFC photos all day; now, Saves the Day, sure...).

All you have to do is come up with a hypothetically awesome new kind of Derby. You know, there are Soap Box Derbies; the Kentucky Derby; Roller Derby; Derby, Kansas...all of these are fine, but we think you, dear LocalCut reader, can build a better Derby. So leave your awesome Derby idea in the comments section (USE YOUR REAL NAME AND EMAIL ADDRESS, DUMMY, OR WE CAN'T CONTACT YOU!!), and the winner gets TWO tickets to see Derby at Doug Fir on Friday, Jan. 28—plus a Derby 7-inch and a Death Cab For Cutie photo book (just because).

GET TO IT! And while you're at it, why not take a listen to my favorite song from the new EP, Derby's "Creeping Climbing"?
