Round 1 LP & Deadline News

34 people managed to turn something in on time. The bad news is of course that 10 people did not turn something in on time. A few people pulled out of the contest, while others just missed the deadline. For those of you that missed the deadline, but have a song (or part of one) finished, get it turned in. Shadow entries are awesome, and everyone in the contest would love to hear your work. Anything else that's turned in will be added to the album, and played at the listening party.

The listening party will be hosted by Tom, and it starts at 8PM TONIGHT! Like always, we're going by my time, not yours. (counter has been updated for you) Tom will play the songs in the order they were submitted. I hope you decide to stop by, and bring friends. The show officially starts at 8PM, but Tom said he'll have a preshow that starts around 7:30PM (maybe earilier). All songs will be available for FREE listen & download shortly after the LP.

So many people pushed the deadline, and didn't turn in a draft early. If you wait until the last 15 minutes to turn something in, there's a good chance you'll end up missing the deadline. Files take longer to upload & send than you think, links may not work, power outages happen, computer crashes, bounced e-mails, etc..etc... I know sometimes waiting until the last second is unavoidable, but it should be avoided if possible. The deadline is as much a part of the challenge as the lyrical/musical prompt.

Deadline Eliminations:
Bram Tant - Elsewheres - Andy Glover - Slow Motion Commotion - Spencer Sokol - Spandex Moose - Godz Poodlz - Ethan Ivey - Mike Falzone - Bryce Jensen

(Details about the round 1 judges eliminations will be posted after the LP in the next blog post.)


  1. I would love to be at the LP tonight but my wife and I are going out for her birthday, to see Garrison Keillor. I'll just have to listen to the album instead (and I'm eagerly waiting to do that!)

  2. A worthy push everyone! I had a good time reading about everyone's tries this go and I hope y'all try for shadows cuz they're great and worthwhile. :) Rhod, I sure hope you heal up quick. A broken collarbone is no fun :(
    Way to go folks !!! :)
    RangerDen(ise), Judge number 4, I think :)

  3. Wow, time is a big eliminator this round. Too bad.
    Hopefully we'll still hear some of these artists' songs in the shadows (turn 'em in anyway, folks! I wanna hear 'em!). If they're already finished, we could hear them in the LP!
