Win A Pair Of Tix: Buckethead is probably known for his masked face as much as he is for incredible guitar playing.  The “man without a face” thing certainly doesn’t work for everyone, but there are a few artists who might do well to hide behind a mask now and then.  Name 3 artists who you wish would cover up their mug and just focus on the music!  Get your comments in by next Tuesday (September 15th).  A winner will be notified shortly thereafter.

  1. Buckethead…
    1.Thom Yorke (Radiohead) – love Radiohead but I cannot stand Thom’s pretentious stares and smug smiles. His recent interviews have not helped my pretentious perception of him.
    2.Annie Clark (St.Vincent) – She is just so darn cute with her green eyes that it is so hard to focus on her incredible music.
    3. Michael Travis (SCI, EOTO) – Nothing against the guy but when he really gets into the groove he makes a face that looks like he is taking an excruciating poop.

    • The tix are yours, Erik! What a great list. What is with the “poop face” anyway? John Mayer is totally guilty of that one as well…
