Some of you may remember our 2008 mix CD contest, where we challenged you to improve our bar playlist (and restore the sanity of those of us who have to listen to it 8-12 hours a day, and get terribly bored by hearing the same stuff over and over) by contributing mix CDs. After another couple years of relative playlist stagnation, we've decided to bring it back; thus, Playlist Refresh 2011 is on!
Make a mix CD, or several, and bring them in to the Standard during the month of March. In return, we'll do the following:
--Do our best to work your CD or CDs into our playlist (with some limitations, of course: stuff that is too grating or weird to play at a bar won't make the cut).
--Give you $2 off a beer (this applies just for the first CD you bring).
Also, the top three submissions, as judged by our magnificently sensitive ears, will win prizes. Like bar tabs, t-shirts, pint glasses, and various other merch, depending on what you want.
So drop off your CD or CDs with a bartender, making sure to put your contact info on the CDs. Gentlemen (and ladies), start your burning!
