The Magnetic Fields' 50 Song Memoir tour is on. Having stopped for two nights each in Washington, DC, and Philadelphia last week, the tour heads next to the Carolina Theatre in Durham this Tuesday and Wednesday. Given that the 50 Song Memoir album and tour chronicle the 50 years of songwriter Stephin Merritt's life with one song per year, we thought you might like to take home even more Merritt, so we're giving away both a copy of the 5-LP vinyl set and a life-sized Stephin Merritt standee!
For your chance to win, simply follow these three easy steps:
1. Visit the merch table at any stop on the US tour
2. Take a selfie with the cardboard Stephin standee standing there
3. Post the pic to Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook with the hashtag #StephinStandee.
Can't make it to a show? Tour not coming to your town? Sorry if we missed you, Philly and DC. To enter, you can print out this photo of Stephin at home (it doesn't need to be life-sized!), then follow steps 2 and 3 above. Stephin will pick a winner after the US tour ends on May 7.
