Let's face it, February isn't the best time of the year to be in Minnesota. It's the fourth month in a six month winter; it's that month when you're starting to lose your zen-like calm over making it past the January hump.
The Current wants to help. We've teamed up with The Weezer Cruise to provide passage for one lucky winner (and a friend) to join Rivers Cuomo, Pat Wilson, Brian Bell, Scott Shriner and more than a dozen other awesome bands on a cruise from Jacksonville, Fla. to the Bahamas and back again from Feb. 13-17, 2014.
How to win
Four times per day (from Nov. 11 through Nov. 15, 2013) our on air hosts will tell you during which hour we will post the Weezer Cruise logo on thecurrent.org. It's no ordinary logo, though. It is a link to an audio password read by Pat Wilson of Weezer. The first listener to call in to (651) 989-4893 and correctly recite the password to an on air host will win two signed limited-edition posters, (see below) and be entered into a random drawing with the other 19 qualifiers to win passage aboard The Weezer Cruise in an Ocean View cabin for two.
The cruise departs Feb. 13, 2014 from Jacksonville, Fla. (Note: grand prize does NOT include airfare to/from Jacksonville, Fla. See Official Rules for more details.)
We'll stack up the password time/dates as we identify winners. Remember, we're posting 4 passwords Monday Nov. 11 through Friday, Nov. 15, 2013.
