[UPDATE: This contest is closed and the winners have been notified.]

Would you like your plans for Memorial Day weekend to involve an Icelandic band that makes the music of the spheres?

Good, you got here just in time. We're giving away TWO PAIRS of tickets to see unsurpassed, the inimitable, the unpronounceable Sigur Rós, who are playing the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, Oregon on Sunday, May 26. So if your holiday weekend plans already include a trip to Bend, this weekend just got bendier.... I'm sorry, I don't know what I meant by that.

Anyway, here's the deal! Very important: You MUST be able to swing by the Portland Mercury office (located in scenic downtown Portland) sometime next week to pick up the tickets, or have a trusted someone do it for you. If this isn't possible, please don't enter the giveaway, as these are physical tickets and you will need to come and get them.

So! If that's all in order, send an email to this address with "Sigur Ros" in the subject line, and please include your first and last name, along with the letter of the correct answer to this incredibly difficult Sigur Rós trivia question:

Which of these is NOT an actual Sigur Rós song title?
A. Rafstraumur
B. Svefn-g-englar
C. Ggyguffenflaghen yððöoooooooo
D. Fjögur píanó
Ready, steady, go! This contest will close Monday at 5 pm, so good luck!

Sigur Rós at the Les Schwab Amphitheater in Bend, 344 SW Sevlin-Hixon, Sun May 26, 6:30 pm, all ages, $44-46, tickets here
