Sounds of Style Sweepstakes

Urban Outfitters, RCRD LBL, and CMJ 2010 have teamed up to offer a contest any fashion-friendly music lover would find hard to resist.  Just submit your e-mail address to sign up to your local Thrillist (17 major cities currently available) and you’ll automatically be entered.   One lucky winner will receive a $1000 shopping spree at Urban Outfitters, two CMJ Music Marathon badges, and a VIP weekend in NYC with Thrillist-approved hotel and dining.  Thrillist is a daily or weekly email dedicated to bringing you the latest style, food, music, and nightlife in your town.  “We’re talking absinthe-only cocktail spots, eateries that dish up BBQ Rattlesnake Salad and Reindeer in Bourbon Sauce, and ATMs whose currency is marijuana”.  Either way it’s a win-win situation.
