Thrift Store Cowboys Song Tournament Announcement

TSCBracketby: Thomas D. Mooney

We’ve been keeping this in our back pocket for a while now. All things considered, it seemed like the perfect time to go ahead and take on the Thrift Store Cowboys song catalog–one of the most expansive discographies ever to come out of Lubbock. With Daniel Fluitt’s TSC Going Away Extravaganza happening later this month, it seemed like now or never. 

If you’re familiar with our previous artist song tournaments, this one will run pretty much the same way. For those of you not familiar with our Artist Song Tournaments, here’s what you need to know. Essentially, we take an artist/band’s song catalog and rank the songs by popularity. Songs deemed more popular, the higher the seeds. This time around, each individual match-up will be decided not by an anonymous pool of voters, but rather, you the reader. It’ll be open to a public vote, where we trust you to vote for the better song between the two. We’ll just write about the results. 

You’ll also have the opportunity to submit your own filled out bracket (Think NCAA Basketball brackets). While we don’t know exactly what the winners’ package will include at the very moment, it’ll be worth it.

To be eligible to for our Thrift Store Cowboys Song Tournament:

You must have your bracket submitted to newslangsongtournament@gmail.com no later than 12:01 a.m. Wednesday, January 15, 2014. 
You must be 18 or older. 
You must only submit one bracket. 

The easiest way for you to fill out your bracket will be one of the following ways:

Open the bracket in Photoshop (or any similar software) and pasting your picks for each round. 
Printing the bracket and filling it out by hand and scanning your bracket. 

Once again, e-mail your brackets attached to newslangsongtournament@gmail.com with the following information:

Name
City of Residence
Number
Date of Birth

Winner(s) will be notified no later than Friday, January 24, 2014. For more information on how brackets will be scored, click here.
