Contest–win a date with Marnie Stern!
Kill Rock Stars has found a unique way to promote the latest album (The Chronicles of Marnia, out March 19) from guitarist/songwriter Marnie Stern. However, it’s not open to Vancouverites – or anyone living outside the New York area, for that matter.
From the press release:
“Hipster guys, are you tired of seeingÂ MarnieÂ Stern have relationships with an endless array of losers and bores?Â Don’t you think a guitarist as great asÂ MarnieÂ should have someone special to watch Law and Order SVU with? Do you enjoy petting dogs while eatingÂ chickenÂ wings?Â Â AndÂ honestly,Â don’tÂ youÂ thinkÂ aÂ nice,Â positivelyÂ cute,Â 30-something Jewish girl should meet the man of her dreams? We sure do!”
Applicants are invited to send an email with answers to the application questions (below) as well as title of favourite Stern trackÂ and a recent photo.
More from the press release: “Age, religion, and race are not a factor, but a sense of humor isÂ critical [bold is sic]. Marnie’sÂ ideal man is a homebody who doesn’t mind that his girlfriend is out of town on tour a lot, and is not a drug addict, a slacker, or a vegan.
“One more thing:Â MarnieÂ doesn’t get to pick the winner,Â Marnie’sÂ record label and publicist do, so go ahead and charm the metaphorical pants off us. We just want the best for her…and maybe you are it!!”
Kill Rock Stars will pay for the date.
