Treasure Island Music Festival 2012: contest finalists



There were a slew of amazing entries in our Treasure Island Music Festival ticket contest! We asked you to post a Haiku about your favorite band performing at this year's festival, October 13-14, in the San Francisco Bay Area. The amazing line-up includes The XX, M83, Grimes, Best Coast, Ty Segall, SBTRKT, Youth Lagoon, The Presets, and more than a dozen more eclectic artists. The finalists below each receive a Boing Boing t-shirt! The winner, to be announced tomorrow (Friday), will score a pair of VIP 2-Day Tickets, a $479 value, courtesy of our pals at co-promoters Noise Pop. Here are the three finalist Haikus:


How to describe Grimes:
Canadian Space Mermaid,
A Cyborg Banshee!

Joseph V:

the youth lagoon song
used in that skype commercial
saved me in prison

Russell Walks:

Love the Double X
He says, staring at her shirt.
Man, she hates liars.
