There are one pair of weezer tickets given away at each of the indie store events and the winner must be present to win.

The CD never made it to the Chicago listening party in time, so they are doing this: Fans that went to Rolling Stones (the store) got free refreshments and could enter to win one of two pairs of tickets to the Chicago date, a WEEZER lunch box or one of 2 sets of catalog CDs. The rescheduled actual album listening will be on 5/7, same place:
