Win Tokyo Police Club tickets with a crazy contest idea

Indie rockers Tokyo Police Club (pictured) are opening for Passion Pit at Rams Head Live Wednesday.

The show is sold out, but the band is going to give two free tickets to whoever can come up with the best idea for a crazy contest.

That's not all. The winner gets to meet the band, compete against them in the contest, go to the show and maybe even walk home with a free CD or poster. Yay social media!


It can be anything from grape catching to wheelbarrow racing, but something Baltimore-centric would be even better. I have a few ideas to get you started ...

Since swimming across the Inner Harbor would likely result in hospitalization for all involved parties, I'd like to see one or more members of the band compete in an Old Bay eating contest. Whoever consumes the most saltine crackers covered in Old Bay wins! Or not.


There could also be a crab race, kinda sorta like the one they do at Lexington Market every year around Preakness time. They get two live crabs, mark a finish line and see which crab crosses it first. Scuttle scuttle!

Those are just my lame ideas. Come up with a non-lame idea and you could win! Post your idea in the comments section (be sure to leave your e-mail, so I contact you if you win).
