We've got another freebie for you here on End Hits, and this one's a biggie: We've got two wristbands to this weekend's Slabtown Bender to give away to one lucky winner. Starting on Friday and ending in the wee, tiny hours of Monday morning, the Bender is three days of music and mayhem—and booze, really, if you want to be frank about it. Dozens of punk and garage bands fill the Slabtown stage, and the bar's packed for a weekend solid. It's been described, in what's still one of my favorite quotes, from Therapists' Jon Barron, as "a veritable shart-storm of booze and disasters."

So you want to go. Well, the way to win is to comment right here—we'll either pick a comment at random or pick our favorite, so if you want to write something cool, that's great, and if you don't or can't or won't, that's okay, too. Get commenting! And good luck. Contest closes tomorrow (Feb 2) at 3 pm.
