Win Voodoo passes

Where Y'at magazine is giving away a pair of 3 day passes to Voodoo (closed now), and Live Music Blog is also giving away a pair of 3 day passes, along with a meet & greet with Moon Taxi and stage passes for their set.

Update (09/17/13): Here's another chance to win tickets...from Voodoo on Facebook - "Build your Voodoo path and you could win a pair of weekend credentials for the ritual! Create your Voodoo schedule, share on your Facebook and Twitter pages, and you'll be automatically entered to win. To build your Voodoo path: http://goo.gl/WJtxyw"

Update (09/24/13): Consequence of Sound is giving away VIP passes and hotel accommodations. Enter to win here, which should also help give me more entries to win. :)

Also, the Voodoo ticket office is claiming they will not be selling single day passes this year, only 3 day. I don't buy this for a second! They might wait until the week of the show, or even day of the show, but they will have single day passes available somewhere. I would stake my life on that. But you should know that this is what they are telling people over the phone, so that's the official position as of now.

Cure's backstage rider requests for Monterrey

Translation from Mural.com: "The Cure also has simple tastes. Concert organizers to give the English band in the Arena Monterrey on October 8 will have to be ready in the dressing room of Robert Smith and his companions no less than milk and Corn Flakes.

On your next visit to royal land, the group called for, among other things, chicken salad and tuna salad, vegetable soup, 12 chocolate bars, assorted pickles, olive oil and cheese bars.

To drink, the musicians want to have on hand 24 water bottles, 12 Red Bulls, 12 lemonades, juices and soft drinks V8 Dr. Pepper.

To provide, The Cure called pink champagne brand Krug, Mumm, Perrier-Jouet and Moët & Chandon, red wine and a bottle of tequila añejo." (Thanks @TheCureMexico)
