I'd love to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, I'm in love with the songs from Zero and can't wait to hear/see them performed live.

/site_media/uploads/images/users/prefix/no-user-pic.gif orthocycline

Definitely Silversun Pickups! Everyone else comes around often, but I've always wanted to see those guys.

Ra Ra Riot.

/site_media/uploads/images/users/prefix/no-user-pic.gif rarestock

Back as kids we used to kiss when we played truth or dare
Now she's more sophisticated, highly edu-ma-cated
Not at all over-rated, I think I need a prayer
To get in her boots and it looks rather dry
I guess a twinkle in her eye is just a twinkle in her eye
Although she's crazy steppin', Ill try to stop her stride
Cause I wont have no more of this passin' me by

Needless to say, The Pharcyde.

Now, the band I like best among these is the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But if I have to pick one, it would be the Beastie Boys, because I've tried to see them so many times in the past without success. I had tickets to the tour that was nixed when one of them broke his arm. I had tickets to the Field Day fest before it was condensed/rescheduled into a mess I couldn't attend. They even played a ten-minute walk from my apartment a few years ago on a night I had tickets elsewhere. So: Beastie Boys FTW!

/site_media/uploads/images/users/prefix/no-user-pic.gif rockmarooned

Beastie Boys, of course! They're the greatest! Seen them twice already, and I'm looking forward for the perfect triplet! :)

Mori Einsidler

I was all set to see coldplay. Tickets were coming out the next day, and i'd been waiting for weeks. Then they cancelled the show I had been planning on attending. So, coldplay, who may never play in the area again, is the band I most want to see.

Fleet Foxes, Rye Rye, MSTRKRFT and The National on the 31st show should be great

/site_media/uploads/images/users/prefix/no-user-pic.gif returncookiemountain

MGMT would be a dream for me to see live. I live in a city where great artists and festivals either go to Detroit or London, never in between (in Windsor). I already know im not going to Lollapolloza or even the upcoming folk festival in Guelph because i dont have money to spend. if i won these tickets, itd for sure make my summer and id somehow find money to pay for the rest of the expenses.

/site_media/uploads/images/users/petrichw/3706051978_bd2c2e1af2.jpg petrichw

I have been wanting to see the Black Keys live for years now, but i keep missing my chance because of work and whatnot. I would absolutely love to see them this year at APW.

Michelle M.

i really really really really really really really really really really really want to see MGMT and Lykke Li!!!!

/site_media/uploads/images/users/prefix/no-user-pic.gif jam88

There is no other artist or artists in the world, right now and at this point in time that I would rather see than HEARTLESS BASTARDS on July 31st!!!!!! I would go completely nuts if I won these tickets!!!

/site_media/uploads/images/users/DemonMeister/TOMGUN.jpg DemonMeister

Beastie Boys & MGMT!!!!

Arctic Monkeys! Please let me win, I've been trying to get tickets to the NYC show for them at the Highline Ballroom since June, checking the band's site everyday, but missed both the presale and the general sale. Arctic Monkeys are my favorite band and I atleast would really love to see them at APW! It would really make my summer since I'm really upset over not being able to get tickets for their other show. I've never been to a concert before and seeing the Arctics would def be the best! I'm 15 and live like less than an hour from the place so it would be pretty convenient. Please pick me!

Arctic Monkeys!
