[UPDATE 8/8/12: The staff voted and twiddled our beards all morning, but Tim "Santa" Clauss is our winner! He said: "My beard would be like the tendrils of the mighty sea anemone. Cool comfort for those immune to its stinging, but deadly poison to others who venture too near. Also, it would be bright orange and would change colors when the music around it is uber great." Thanks to all your incredible bearded entries! We'll be posting a contest to win passes to LouFest shortly, so stay tuned...]
Which is, of course, what happens when you trim part of your beard and leave it under your pillow. The Beard Fairy always comes through. And we thought we'd give the tickets to you, if you'd like.
This is a one day contest. It ends today at 5 p.m. CST.
Since we don't have time to have a beard growing contest honoring these two great bands, we'll have to go a simpler route.
In the comments below, we want you to imagine you had a Superpowered Beard just like these guys. And if you had a Superpowered Beard, what could it do?
Could it choke ticket scalpers? Is it magically soup-resistant? Is your superpowered beard a reincarnation of other, more famous beards? Can it play a mean drum solo? Be creative, be descriptive, and get as hairy as you want.
THE SIMPLE RULES
1. Enter as many times as you'd like, but only one entry will be considered. Have fun.
2. This contest is one day only: today, August 7. It ends at 5 p.m. CST today.
3. Login in the Disqus comments field below. This allows us to contact you if you win. Alternately, you could leave your email address with your comment in an "Joe Blow AT email.com" format if you'd like (typing it that way allows you to avoid evil spam crawling internet bots).
4. Winner must be able to arrange to pick up the pair of tickets from the 88.1 KDHX Studios in St. Louis (we're in South City) before the show on Wednesday, August 8.
Good luck, and check back here tomorrow for a LouFest weekend pass contest!
