Fans who attend Spoon’s show on Thursday, July 9, at Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater (featuring opening acts Quasi and Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears) will have a chance to enter a special drawing presented by Girls Rock Camp Austin to win an Epiphone Dot guitar signed by all members of the band. Tickets for the drawing are only $5 each. Girls Rock Camp will display the signed guitar at the event, and will post the winner on http://www.girlsrockcampaustin.org/
This is an opportunity for a Spoon fan to grab a very special piece of memorabilia and help out Girls Rock Camp Austin at the same time. Girls Rock Camp Austin, the only nonprofit all-female summer music program in Central Texas, is devolted to empowering girls through musical education and performance. Fifty percent of GRCA's campers receive financial aid through the organization.
