I have decided to spread the word about Independent Ethos by creating a Facebook page. The social networking opportunities cannot be ignored by a former writer of magazine articles adapting to the brave new media.
But I herald this occasion embracing another aspect of the social network: the web-friendly giveaway. Last week, you might recall my brief post celebrating the unfairly beleaguered Modern English as one-hit wonders, as I shared another deserved-to-be-acknowledged hit: their first single “Gathering Dust,” which also revealed a whole other side the New Wave band’s sound (Modern English returns to Miami – here’s to hopes for encore of “Gathering Dust”).
Showing their support of this blog, the venue, Grand Central, is ready to give away a pair of tickets to one of those responding to this contest and can get to the venue in Miami. It’s simple to enter. First, like the Independent Ethos page on Facebook and share the name of your favorite one-hit wonder. There is no wrong answer. I’m leaving it to the gods of the Internet to pick the right answer via random.org. But you have to like on the new, supplemental Facebook book page for Independent Ethos and put your comments there (edit: contest closes tomorrow night [11:59 p.m.], as the show is the next day).
