New on Rock Candy
For those Kris Allen fans who didn't snatch up tickets to see Kris and the rest of the “American Idol” top 10 in concert at Alltel on July 25, the Times has your back. In “Idol” fashion, we're inviting readers to submit a video of them performing any one of the songs Kris Allen performed on “Idol.” At least one talented performer will win a pair of tickets to see the Idols live in concert (and maybe more if the talent pool bears it).
To enter, upload a video of yourself performing a Kris Allen song to any online service (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) and send a link to firstname.lastname@example.org. Beyond singing the song, contestants are free to do anything they deem appropriate in the video. Deadline for entry is July 1. Soon thereafter, we'll post the top videos and let our readers, via online balloting, declare the winner.
Make sure you check out the latest Rock Candy Presents video on the Times' homepage video player. The latest features the ultra-buzzy new band the See doing “First Thought,” from its just-released “Bars of Gold” EP. It's the latest in an ongoing series, produced, at White Water, by Greg Spradlin (video), Jason Weinheimer (sound) and Robyn Friday (edit). Check the Times' multimedia page for past Rock Candy Presents videos for Kevin Kerby + Battery and joshua (of Velvet Kente).
