Malkmus To Announce “Blowjob” Contest Winner IN SONG Tonight During Amoeba Webcast

August 23rd, 2011 at 10:00 am by Michael

If you’ve been tuned in to CNN this blog lately, you may recall how today marks two very  important future cultural benchmarks.  First, today sees the release of Stephen Malkmus And The Jicks’ new album Mirror Traffic.

Second, to celebrate the aforementioned release, Stephen and the Jicks will be playing a free, all-ages instore this evening at Hollywood’s seminal rock outlet Amoeba Music at 6pm PST.  The entire performance will be streamed on Amoeba’s website so even if you’re not in LA, you can still check it out and find out who won the best fucking contest of all-time the contest to help Steve find an alternate word for “blowjob” so that the radio will play his single Senator.

Funny I should mention THIS CONTEST now because contrary to our having told you guys we were going to announce the winner in a few weeks, we’re just so damn excited that Stephen will be announcing the winner during this evening’s performance of Senator on Amoeba webcast, so be sure to tune in and find out if you’ve won. And while we’ve only got a few hours until showtime, we’ve still yet to determine that perfect “blowjob” substitute. So get your last minute entries in right now. Seriously, we’re shutting it down (boss) in a few hours.

And if you just can’t wait another minute to get your SM/JCKS online video fix, check out Mirror Traffic’s first video right now.

In addition to two other instores later this week, the band will be hitting the road for a very awesome and very extensive tour in a few weeks’ time. Those dates below.
