In case you haven’t noticed — and it’s kinda hard not to — there’s a lot of construction going on outside The Record Exchange (as well as a lot of nothing despite blocked parking spots and other wacky impediments to our natural order of things). And that means barrels, oh so many orange barrels.
With that, we give you The Record Exchange Barrel of Laughs Photo Contest.
The rules are pretty simple: Visit The Record Exchange, take a funny/strange photo (preferably of you and/or some friends) that somehow incorporates the store and surrounding construction, post it to our Facebook, Twitter or Instagram page with the hashtag #rxbarreloflaughs and we’ll select first-place, second-place and third-place winners.
What exactly does a winning photo make? Basically, it has to make us laugh and/or creep us out. Suggestions for accomplishing this include befriending an orange barrel (inappropriate behavior, while championed, has to fall within the parameters of various social media photo guidelines), incorporating real live construction workers or recreating a scene from your favorite movie set in a post-industrial wasteland from the near-distant future. In short, wow us with your creativity.
The prizes are as follows:
First place – $25 Record Exchange Gift Card, vinyl LP, album cover canvas print and T-shirt prize pack from Royal Blood (who successfully drowned out the din of the construction with their blistering Record Exchange in-store) and a pair of tickets to an upcoming Duck Club Presents show of your choice*.
Second place – $10 Record Exchange Gift Card, Delta Spirit Into the Wide vinyl LP and a pair of tickets to an upcoming Duck Club Presents show of your choice*.
Third place – $10 Record Exchange Gift Card and a pair of tickets to an upcoming Duck Club Presents show of your choice*.
