We're very excited to announce the next in a long line of Phish.net giveaways! We're giving away 2 tickets to any show on the upcoming Mike Gordon tour!! The rules are simple: just write an acrostic poem using any song title from Mike's newest album "Moss." Choose a song and write a poem using the first letter from each word in the song title. It can be humorous, dramatic, adventurous, melancholy... even a short morality play. Whatever your chosen genre, your peers will get to vote on your comments. We'll close the thread on the evening of March 4, then we'll take the 3 highest rated poems at that time and a small circle of
old, beaded, crusty phish.net admins will convene in a dark room and subjectively select a winner. The grand prize winner will get two tickets to any show on the upcoming tour, the two runners up will each get a signed copy of Moss on vinyl.
We took a little liberty with the title of this blog post, as you no doubt noticed, but we hope you'll take the challenge seriously. Contests anytime need to satisfy typical appeal: never devalued, sometimes thoughtlessly invented, lovingly lauded.
Please note that in order to qualify, you must have a Phish.net account, you must post between now and March 4, 2011 at midnight, and you must have a valid email address attached to your phish.net account.
If you liked this blog post, one way you could "like" it is to make a donation to The Mockingbird Foundation, the sponsor of Phish.net. Support music education for children, and you just might change the world.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $1,000,000 to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
