  1. Hoping for Girlyman tickets: Joyful Girl (ani), Fell in Love with a Girl (White Stripes), and Bjork’s cover of I Can’t Help Loving That Man Of Mine (because Bjork, obviously).

  2. For Ty Segall tix: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars / The Life of Chris Gaines / I am Sasha Fierce. Would make for a good package tour.

  3. For Mission of Burma tix: I want my sidekick to be Bill Murray, just because.

  4. For Thee Oh Sees + Ty Segall tickets: Tim by The Replacements (keeping it as generic as possible here), Vampire on Titus by Guided by Voices, and Yam, the King of Crops by The Mountain Goats.

  5. My sidekick on a top-secret mission? TinTin. Clever, handsome and he speaks French.

  6. Hoping for Girlyman Tickets… Jody Girl- Bob Segar, Girls Like Me (Summertime)- Coyote Grace, Worried Man- Paolo Nutini, Simple Man-Lynyrd Skynyrd, Mr. Tambourine Man- Bob Dylan, Man of Constant Sorrow- traditional.

    Prison Girls (Neko Case), Girls Like Me (Thou Shalt Not), Chickenman (Indigo Girls)

  8. Winners have been notified. Thanks everyone!

  9. I choose Barney Milton Fyfe as my sidekick. He has a bullet and he (sort of) knows how to use it.
